Edinburgh University Students’ Association has committed to the most radical change in food provision that the Association has ever experienced. A meeting of Committee of Management on the 25th January resolved to aim for the Soil Association’s ‘Food for Life’ targets of 30% Organic, 50% local and 70% unprocessed ingredients. They will be the first Students’ Union in the UK to do this.
Vice-President Services Tim Gee said:
“I know we have excellent chefs, but they often have to work with heavily processed ingredients. Many schools, and even Celtic Football Club have committed to these targets. I want Edinburgh University to lead the way on Organic and Local food in the same as we have with Fairtrade.”
