Their new initiative, “Eat Well. Travel Further.” targets this need and provides healthy snack options.
“Travelers don’t have to sacrifice their mindful dining choices. Whether they follow a plant-based or protein-rich diet, our Eat Well. Travel Further. offerings are themed around current lifestyle eating habits to give health-conscious travelers new ways to fuel their journeys,” said HMSHost Vice President of Marketing & Communications Atousa Ghoreichi. “We are advancing our commitment to the wellness culinary ethos, appealing to the growing need for more, easily accessible health-forward options in travel venues.”
The company has made a promise to its customers to offer 3 things.
Servings with 500 calories or less in nutrient-dense foods.
Clean eating options with no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.
Healthy foods that do not include hydrogenated fats or high fructose corn syrup.
