• Food

    Brookes is committed to sourcing ethical and sustainable food. Read more about our ethos and accreditations, including being the world’s first Fairtrade University. See our Sustainable Food Strategy and Sustainable Food Action Plan for details.

  • Catering Services provides ongoing support to promote healthy and sustainable food options at Brookes. This includes, actively sourcing locally grown produce and promoting seasonal foods, maintain sustainable food and animal welfare accreditation such as Fairtrade, MSC seafood, Red Tractor meat and Good Egg. In addition, Catering has a goal to reduce food and paper cup waste. Our new Triple Shot of Sustainability programme promotes reusable cup use while composting over 6 tonnes of coffee grounds per year and diverting up to 400,000 paper cups from the waste bin per year.

    The University celebrated its fifteenth anniversary as the world’s first Fairtrade University in 2018. A survey of student opinions on Fairtrade was completed in February 2020.
