Top taste at London South Bank

Elior UK and London South Bank University achieve Food For Life Accreditation

Posted by Hannah Oakman | July 16, 2016 | Catering & hospitality

Contract caterer Elior UK has worked with London South Bank University to secure Soil Association Food for Life Accreditation.

The Bronze Catering Mark guarantees that the food Elior UK serves to students and staff at Southwark Campus has met standards for sourcing and provenance.

The Food For Life Catering Mark is based on the principles that food should be fresh, local, seasonal and better for animal welfare. It shows food has been freshly prepared using ingredients that are free from GM and harmful additives.

Ernst Weisbrod, estates contracts manager at London South Bank University, said: “The health and wellbeing of our students, staff and visitors to the campus catering facilities is a priority for London South Bank University. Food is an important part of all of our daily lives and has a direct impact on our health. Our partners, Elior UK, have risen to the challenge and are playing their part by making healthy locally prepared food available."

To show that it meets the Bronze Standards, Elior UK has passed a thorough inspection by the Soil Association.
