Sustainable Food

Our main catering outlets have been awarded the Silver Food for Life Catering Award by the Soil Association. All the hot food served at NTU's main outlets meet the SA's criteria for local, seasonal and ethically sourced ingredients. All pre-packed sandwiches and salads are sourced from local suppliers too, so you know your lunch will have a low carbon footprint!
