Join a pioneering Sustainable Catering Programme specifically designed for Universities and Colleges.
The Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) is working in partnership with TUCO Ltd to help Universities and Colleges tackle their sustainability challenges.
The SRA’s Food Made Good programme is currently supporting 5,500 foodservice sites across the UK to reduce their food waste, improve energy efficiency and win the hearts and minds of customers. And TUCO Members are eligible for a lifetime discount.
Full details of the programme are below, when you are ready complete the form and a member our team will be touch!
HOW IT WORKS
The Sustainable Restaurant Association offers a combination of advisory services and certification. The Food Made Good programme is based around our widely respected sustainability framework, built on the three pillars of Sourcing, Society and Environment.
Supported by a personal Account Manager you will work through a comprehensive Sustainability Rating. This audit will shed light on opportunity areas and highlight current success.
We’ll be on hand to support your on-going efforts. Score over 50% in the Rating and you’ll be awarded one or more Food Made Good Stars, a badge of honour that can be proudly displayed in your window, on your website or menus.
PROCESS & BENEFITS
Helping the institutions we work with to achieve their sustainability aims is a continual process. The SRA’s initial audit identifies the strengths and opportunities in your foodservice operation, before a designated Account Manager will collaborate with you on an Action Plan, realistic enough to implement real improvements. Every business has its own aspirations when it comes to sustainability, the Food Made Good programme exists to help you achieve and communicate them year-on-year.
The Food Made Good Sustainability Rating shows students and stakeholders that you’re passionate about serving great quality food in a way that isn’t costing the earth. Remember, diners also understand that sustainability is a journey. If you don’t achieve top marks straight away, we’ll be on hand to help you get to where you’d like to be.
The Food Made Good Sustainability Rating is a 3-Star rating
Over 50% = One Star: Good
60-70% = Two Stars: Excellent
Over 70% = Three Stars: Outstanding
This will give you an idea as to where your institution currently lies in terms of its sustainability and also a sneaky peek at some of the questions of our full Member’s survey.
As part of the ongoing partnership between TUCO and the SRA, we will be delivering a series of TUCO Academy training courses. Focusing on sustainability, these sector specific training, CPD accredited, sessions will provide you with a clear understanding of the ways that all staff can influence the achievement of a sustainable operation, an essential component in the complex formula for success.
