Satisfaction of customers' needs is the pillar of our business. We are eager to provide a service that meets customer expectations, but we also need to exceed such expectation through high standard performances, involving the protection of our environment in every activity we undertake.

Transforming Initiatives into Action

Buying locally

Wherever possible we buy locally and seasonally. This means we can guarantee fresh food at the same time as supporting local producers and decreasing our carbon impact.

Low Carbon Meals Scheme

We are part of the University's Low Carbon Meals Scheme, which aims to create a wider awareness of the carbon impact of producing and serving food. See the Green activities page for more details.

Save the Rainforest Campaign

To help to protect areas of rainforest in countries of South America, we are in partnership with Puro Fair Trade supporting their initiatives selling the products that can make a difference.

From protecting Rare Breeds to embracing of environmentally-friendly technologies, King’s has shown an intuitive dedication to green issues.
