UWEis now serving Silver Food for Life Catering Mark meals to its staff and students.
The award provides employees and students with a guarantee that they are eating meals which are freshly prepared, healthy, ethical and environmentally sustainable.
The Silver Standards are assessed on a points system. Food providers are rewarded for every percentage point of their ingredient spend on ethical and environmentally friendly food, locally sourced ingredients and steps to offer healthier menus.
Students are increasingly concerned about where their food comes from. UWE is in a unique position to provide environmentally friendly food to a receptive audience and reinforce a longer-term change in buying and eating habits
