Sustainability

Outdoors BC

Our long-term commitment

University Food Services has long been a leader in environmental stewardship, setting examples of sustainability – such as recycling and local food purchasing – long before such practices were widespread.

For nearly two decades our focus has been on looking at new ways to incorporate sustainable practices into our food service delivery.


Local purchasing, global citizenship

At UVic we choose to buy local whenever possible and have become a model for other organizations, such as the District of Saanich, in developing local food purchasing policies. Roughly half of the food we serve in our dining facilities is locally sourced.

We also make it a priority to purchase ethically traded food and beverages. We've been selling 100% Fair Trade Canterbury coffee for the last five years, and recently became the first “Beyond Fair Trade” campus with the introduction of Doi Chaang Coffee at UVic.
