LSE Catering are delighted to achieve a ‘Two-Star – Excellent Rating’ from the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) for our catered halls (Bankside, Passfield, Rosebery and Carr-Saunders) and central restaurants (Fourth Floor Restaurant, the LSE Garrick and the Staff Dining Room).
The SRA celebrates everything that is good about the food service industry and the people in it. Its president is leading chef Raymond Blanc and it is a non-profit organisation that looks at restaurants food sourcing, society and the environment.
The LSE is the first London University to be accredited stars, and the central restaurants score makes it in the top 80% for all SRA accredited universities and the halls in the top 70% which is a fantastic achievement.
It is a brilliant accomplishment to have achieved two stars for our first SRA rating. It took a huge amount of time, effort and hard work to pull together the information required. Our menus, policies and invoices were collated and then scrupulously checked at the SRA and our suppliers were contacted to ensure we are using the sustainable items we say we are. Well done to Karen Agate-Hilton who has put in months and months of time and energy working with the teams and the SRA to ensure we have met all the requirements.
