Universities & colleges

This year’s People and Planet Green League criteria scores the Catering Mark in a new way. If you would like more information, or help with working out your score contact Suzi on 0117 914 2434 or sshingler@soilassocation.org.

Students are increasingly concerned about where their food comes from. Universities and colleges are in a unique position to provide environmentally friendly food to a receptive audience and reinforce a longer-term change in buying and eating habits.

Thousands of meals are served to Catering Mark Standards in 38 universities every day, providing reassurance to students and staff that the food they are eating meets high standards of traceability, provenance and freshness. Over 1000 police were eating bronze Catering Mark meals during the 2014 NATO summit at their base at the University of South Wales!
