This criterion was emphasized on Tuesday by spokesmen for the Cuban hotel chain Gran Caribe, which maintain alliances with small and medium-sized companies, local development projects and private workers, which allow them to reduce the cost of tourist operations, and maintain quality levels in their five-star category facilities.

The Gran Caribe delegate in the region, Héctor Roura, explained that over 90 percent of the products present in the buffet and a la carte restaurants are domestic.

He pointed out that the company does business with 14 economic actors of this nature. They also establish contracts for the maintenance of rooms and the setting of spaces.

As examples, he cited links with the Petalis local development project for interior and open area decorations, and with the Chinese Association for supplies of oriental-themed restaurants.

The approach to non-state forms of management materializes the purpose of increasing the presence of Cuban products in the Gran Caribe facilities, he stressed.

As a result of these links, the variety of food, fruit and salads in buffet restaurants is maintained, essential to meet quality standards related to food in hotel facilities.

Gran Caribe has seven hotels in the Jardines del Rey tourist destination, of which four (Pullman Cayo Coco, Meliá Cayo Coco, Iberostar Daiquirí and Starfish Cayo Guillermo) are operational and receive Canadian, Argentine and national clients.

These establishments have an occupation that exceeded 36 thousand tourists-day at the end of February this year.
