Changes introduced to delivered catering

February 19th, 2024

As part of the university’s cost saving initiatives and to help colleagues and visitors continue to enjoy the use of delivered catering, the university has reviewed its menu offering.

The offer has been streamlined for internal events with key changes outlined below.

Buffets and refreshments for meetings

Lower-cost buffets have been introduced to help schools and departments order buffets as they normally would while reducing internal spend.

For staff conferences requiring full-day attendance and multiple breaks, lunch can still be provided, but ordering of hot beverages will be limited to one booking or break per day.

For example, you may place an order for hot beverages as delegates arrive for the first morning break, or alternatively choose the afternoon break, and then offer juice and water with lunch.

To further reduce costs across the university, biscuits have been removed from the tea and coffee provision.

Office hospitality

The provision of tea and coffee, etc. (office bulk supplies) is still available to order on the delivered catering website for schools, faculties, and departments to assist in minimising departmental costs.

Third parties and external caterers

To keep expenditure within the university and in line with the University Food Safety Policy, the use of external catering and third parties will be restricted and will only be approved if catering is unable to provide this internally.

The changes outlined above are all about making sure everyone gets the most out of our catering services while being mindful of costs – thank you for your understanding.
