Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served.


An industry-leading, global effort and new philosophy to provide sustainable and responsible food and beverage for guests and associates.

Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch today announced the launch of Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served., Hyatt’s global philosophy focused on sourcing and providing healthy food and beverage options for Hyatt guests and associates and that are good for the local communities in which they reside and good for the planet.  Embarking on the journey to become the first global hospitality brand to make an effort of this magnitude, this philosophy will guide Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch’s food and beverage planning from the operational level to the guest experience. With this long term strategy, Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch will work to anticipate and satisfy the evolving preferences of its guests, ensuring that travelers have more options to fit their needs and lifestyles while staying in St. Louis.


Driven by insights and in-depth research, Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served. is grounded in three pillars. 


  • The first pillar is focused on healthy people, and is implemented by providing portion controlled, balanced offerings and natural ingredients prepared with nutrient preserving cooking techniques. Examples include the addition of the Meyer Natural Burger as the signature hamburger in Red Kitchen & Bar and Room Service; Gluten free menus are available in all outlets and vegetarian options are provided on all menus; Stay Fit Cuisine options are provided on the Red Kitchen & Bar and Room Service menus; Additional items include cage free eggs, natural bacon, natural chicken and beef options, organic yogurt, healthy individually packaged snack items such as Cliff, Eat Natural, Larabar and Kind Bars; local produce is utilized based on availability and hormone free milk is offered as a menu option.


  • The second pillar is focused on a healthy planet by ensuring sustainable purchasing and operational practices which are intended to improve the long-term health of people and the planet. Examples include sourcing sustainable seafood; introducing recycling programs that include paper, glass, aluminum and oil. As well as new to-go containers and packaging produced from recycled products.
  • The final pillar is intended to support healthy communities by sourcing from local suppliers as well as sharing knowledge at schools and actively supporting farmers’ markets and other community events. Examples include introducing elementary school students to the hospitality industry and training them on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. We currently utilize local produce vendors through relationships with Ole Thyme Produce based on seasonal availability. Missouri goat cheese has become nationally recognized in recent years through suppliers such as Heartland Creamery and Baetje Farms allowing us to offer great local options to our guests.
“At Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch, we want to meet the needs of the present generation without compromising what’s best for future generations. We believe we have a responsibility to ensure that our dishes are thoughtfully sourced and carefully served,” said Greg Saunders, Managing Director of Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch. “This new philosophy and effort to support the health of our guests, planet, and the local community is at the core of every food and beverage decision that we make at Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch. We are evolving the way we purchase and serve food. We believe it's what our guests deserve."
Implementation of the philosophy, which began in the U.S. in mid-2011, includes sourcing and serving meat without supplemental growth hormones or antibiotics, cage-free eggs, sustainable seafood, and fresh local ingredients that reflect the season and local flavors. Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch is also reducing the use of ingredients with high amounts of sodium and additives and utilizing natural sweeteners such as Stevia and agave nectar.
Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served. is a key component of the health and wellness pillar of Hyatt Thrive, Hyatt’s global corporate responsibility platform designed to enable thriving communities.
As an outgrowth of the company’s core values, Hyatt properties will continue to partner with local community groups and organize volunteer efforts and fund raising support in an effort to improve the economic future of the people and businesses in the communities where Hyatt hotels are located. From providing cooking skills courses in local schools to supporting and hosting farmers markets, Hyatt will also continue to make an effort to support the health of guests, associates and people in the local community.
To further demonstrate its dedication to Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served., Hyatt has joined forces with Partnership for Healthier America (PHA), which will hold Hyatt accountable for continuously improving the nutritional profile of children’s food menus at full-service managed Hyatt properties across the U.S. over the next 10 years. This pledge marks the first of its kind by a hospitality company to PHA.
