Veg People hit Oxford Road

21 Sep 2011

Fairtrade, fresh and reducing our carbon footprint!


FoodOnCampus is a member of Manchester Veg People, a cooperative made up of growers and buyers of fruit and vegetables in the Manchester area.

Being part of this cooperative means FoodOnCampus is able to serve fruit and vegetables across campus that are:

  • Locally sourced and in season reducing our carbon footprint
  • Fairtrade as the grower gets a fair price for their produce
  • Fresh, organic and excellent quality

To promote the partnership FoodOnCampus sent some vegetables onto Oxford Road during Welcome Week to let staff and students sample the quality of the produce for themselves and the feedback was fantastic.
