We love local!
July 9, 2012 - View all eatwithUS News
Here at the University of Sheffield, we’re proud of our Yorkshire roots and work hard to build relationships with local suppliers. As well as supporting Sheffield’s economy, this enables us to bring our customers quality, seasonal products at great value prices. It’s not always possible to use local suppliers, but we aim to always provide sustainable, ethically produced, Fairtrade products in all our outlets.
Here are details of just some of the local suppliers we use:
Innovative local business, Our Cow Molly, was set up in 2007 by a family of dairy farmers who’d been producing milk on their Sheffield farm for three generations. We stock their range of delicious ice-creams from our very own Our Cow Molly ice-cream cart – perfect for a summer lunchtime treat! The ice-cream cart will be on the move around campus throughout the summer. Our Cow Molly ice-cream is £1.50 and is available in a range of flavours.
The award winning Yorkshire Crisp Company believe that local is best. They only use Sheffield spuds – transported to the factory by tractor – and Yorkshire-based packaging suppliers to reduce their impact on the environment. If that wasn’t enough, you can have even more of a taste of Sheffield by sampling their exclusive Henderson’s Relish flavour! Yorkshire Crisps are stocked in all our outlets for 95p.
You may not have heard of Yorkshire company, Total Foods, but if you’ve tasted one of their cookies, you’ll know why we sell over 30,000 of them every year! Available in moreish Toffee & Pecan and Triple Chocolate flavours in City View Café, The Common Room, IC Café and many more locations for just £1.20.
