WDC congratulates global hotel chain on whale meat ban

WDC congratulates the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the world’s fastest-growing hotel companies whose brands include Radisson, Park Inn and Quorvus, which yesterday confirmed that it has added whale meat to its list of prohibited foodstuffs. The move follows a complaint made by a tour guide whose party stayed at the Group’s Radisson Blu hotel at Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway where they were shocked to see whale meat on the menu. The ban covers over 440 hotels in 72 countries across Europe, the Middle East and Africa operated by the Rezidor Group.

If you are travelling to Iceland or Norway this year, please be aware that whale meat consumption by tourists, often in the mistaken belief that the practice is ‘traditional’, is helping to keep this barbaric industry alive. Please urge friends, relatives and work colleagues not to put money into the pockets of the whalers.
