Doha Festival City is committed to upholding food safety standards through its innovative food waste segregation program. With the participation of over 80 fast food and dining outlets, the mall collects and recycles food waste using advanced in-house food digester machines. This sustainable approach not only diverts organic waste from landfills but also generates valuable compost that is utilized for landscaping purposes. By actively engaging in waste reduction and recycling efforts, Doha Festival City demonstrates its commitment to creating a safe and environmentally conscious food ecosystem for both its visitors and the community at large.
