Hug Mug, Taste Manchester menus, Eats opening hours and Barnes Wallis Christmas packages

Give the planet a Hug Mug

The eagerly anticipated ‘Hug Mug’ has gone on sale in all Food On Campus outlets. The reusable mug, which is made from recyclable polypropylene, is excellent value for money at just £5.00. You can also take advantage of some great money saving offers in all Food On Campus outlets including any standard sized hot drink in your Hug Mug for just 50p every Wednesday and 15p off any other time.

Food On Campus is committed to reducing the amount of waste that we send to landfill and minimising our impact on the environment. It has been estimated that the production of one paper cup will result in the loss of 0.09 square meters of natural habitat. So keep your carbon footprint at bay and buy a Hug Mug.
