Your waste won’t go to waste at our Beckett Kitchen (City Campus) or Food Court (Headingley Campus), we ensure that 99% is diverted from landfill by working closely with our specialist recycling partners. This helps to reduce carbon and methane emissions which contribute to global warming.

Food waste is converted into nutrient-rich biofertiliser, called ReGrow, and renewable energy through anaerobic digestion by ReFood. This efficient closed-loop process provides farmers with a sustainable alternative to non-renewable fossil fuel based fertiliser. ReGrow is excellent for soil health and fertility, which in turn is great for crops – creating more food. And when there is food, there will almost always be food waste, and so the process starts again.

We support Fairtrade by serving a range of Fairtrade products, including our tea and coffee. Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. With Fairtrade you have the power to change the world every day. With simple shopping choices you can get farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their future and lead the dignified life everyone deserves.
