The university’s venues use organic and ethically sourced ingredients wherever cost and supply allows and Fairtrade products are sold in the majority of venues around campus. Our coffee supplier is certified Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance and Organic that guarantees no unnecessary chemicals or pesticides are used. And our fish is responsibly sourced, from well-managed and sustainable fisheries. If you’re concerned about a specific dish or particular ingredients, please get in touch and our chefs will provide any information you require about food sourcing and preparation.
