Zummo Z40 juicer installed in the stunning Milestone Hotel in Kensington

Zummo London has just installed a Zummo Z40 juicer in the stunning Milestone Hotel in Kensington. The Zummo Z40 ticked two important boxes for this luxurious five-star hotel: it provides the freshest pure orange juice available, and it cuts down on food waste.

The Grade II listed mansion has been a hotel since 1922, and was named after a cast iron milestone that stands outside the building. In 1998, The Milestone Hotel became part of the exclusive Red Carnation Collection of hotels, who painstakingly restored the building, creating the fabulous boutique hotel we see today.

The Red Carnation Hotel group is a family-run collection of seventeen beautiful hotels across the world, including six in London. It was founded in the 1950s by Bea Tollman, a hotelier who passionately believes in getting every detail right for her guests – and that includes food. She writes:

I have learnt much along the way, but one particularly important golden rule that I feel I must impart is to always seek out the freshest ingredients, no matter where you are.

So naturally, when the team at The Milestone Hotel approached us to provide them with a Zummo Z40 orange juicer, we appreciated that having the freshest juice was really important to them.

Another major part of Red Carnation’s ethos is to care for the environment – they famously planted a living wall at The Rubens at the Palace, another of their London hotels, setting a green standard for hotels in the city. Each Red Carnation Hotel has a “Green Team” who makes sure that their establishment is run along environmentally friendly lines, and this includes monitoring food waste.

With a Zummo Z40 juicer producing zero wastage, and not requiring any plastic bottles (unlike commercially squeezed juice) it’s the green way to produce orange juice. There is no waste from juice going out of date, and thanks to our responsive delivery service, our customers don’t end up with excess oranges.

So how can visitors to The Milestone Hotel enjoy their freshly squeezed orange juice? The hotel is in an excellent location, opposite Kensington Gardens, and guests can have a “Picnic in the Park” served in a traditional wicker picnic hamper. Guests can choose what goes in their hamper – so a refreshing Buck’s Fizz on a warm day, maybe? There is a range of dining options at the hotel; and guests can start their day with a zingy fresh juice at breakfast, or round it off with a classic cocktail at The Stables Bar.
