Hospitality Services is dedicated to reducing our environmental footprint. Partners, who share this commitment to environmental improvements and increased sustainability, will be given significant weight in the RFP (Request for Proposal) process.

BUYING LOCAL

How do we define local? Anything produced, raised, or processed in Ontario! A 2012 assessment by Local Foods Plus showed 40% of purchases made for Residences Dining are local! Over 30% of our total purchases are locally sourced. This relates to over $1.6 million dollars staying in our province, with our local farmers, and supporting our economy!
You can find more information about buying local here.

FAIR TRADE

Hospitality Services is going Fair Trade in 2015! We will be offering local Fire Roasted Coffee and Beyond Fair Trade Doi Chaang Coffee. As well, anywhere tea or chocolate bars are sold 3+ Fair Trade teas and 1+ Fair Trade chocolate bars are available.
