CMV trials butter dispenser to reduce environmental impact

Cruise and Maritime Voyages (CMV) is starting trials of a butter dispenser available at the onboard self-service dining areas.

As part of the company’s on going strategy to reduce environmental impact, the new dispensers will minimise wastage and single use packaging.

Announcing the move Bob McGowan, director of product & guest services said ‘We are committed to doing what we can to reduce waste, single use plastics and packaging on board. This is a great idea and it is also more hygenic when dispensed in this manner.’

Trials on Magellan

Initially the trials will take place on board Magellan at the Raffles Bistro and when buffet style breakfast is served in the Waldorf and Kensington restaurants. If the butter dispenser proves successful then the system will be put in place across the whole fleet said CMV.

Using a patented cooling system, the dispenser processes the butter in small servings. Within three seconds of a passenger placing a plate below the dispenser, then pushing the button, out pops a portion of fresh butter onto a plate below.
