The Curve restaurant at the Mile End campus has retained the Soil Association’s Bronze Food for Life Catering Mark for serving fresh lunches and dinners that meet nutritional guidelines.
More and more students want to know where their food comes from and how it has been made. Catering Mark-award holders have proved that they maintain high standards of traceability, freshness and provenance. The award recognises restaurants and caterers who serve fresh food which is free from controversial additives and better for animal welfare, and includes a rigorous on-site inspection.
QMUL is committed to continually providing healthy, socially responsible and environmentally friendly meal options to students and staff at an affordable price. QMUL has a Sustainable Catering Policy which is based on the Soil Association requirements and aims to continually improve the sustainable catering performance.
Martin Sawyer, Chief Executive of Soil Association Certification, says of The Curve’s performance: “The Bronze Catering Mark is an excellent achievement which recognises the vital role that fresh, seasonal meals play in healthy, planet-friendly menus, especially for large-scale catering. It reassures customers that their meals are free from GM ingredients, trans-fats and prepared from scratch. A huge congratulations to The Curve at QMUL on achieving the Catering Mark.”
