Fresh, local, seasonal...
Catering at Aston recently went out to tender for the fruit and vegetable category. A significant part of the criteria for us was to work with a local supplier, who also sourced their produce locally and had connections with the surrounding community so we could start to develop our menus to reflect the area’s fine availability of artisan cuisine.
We are delighted to announce that we have taken on a new partnership with Worcestershire produce because, as we do, they feel passionately in sourcing local produce and supporting the local community. They don’t supply mass produced foods imported from all over the world just because it is cheaper; they only supply handpicked produce that has been nurtured by local farmers and delivered fresh from the fields. Not only do they supply fruit and vegetables but they also work with local suppliers who produce foods such as cheeses, including Hereford Hop and Whit’ton Oak, and chutneys and jams.
NEW Touch Pay Scheme now live
We've completed the testing on the new TouchPay system and it is now live. It will still allow you to add funds to your ID card, online, to use across campus to purchase food and drink. A 5% discount will apply on all purchases, coupled with loyalty points on all purchases. This new offer will completely replace the previous 10% discount that was available.
All staff and students should receive their username and password via email during the week commencing Tuesday 2nd May, after May Day Bank Holiday. If you do not receive your username and password by 8th May 2017, email the Touch Pay team who will arrange for this to be sent to you.
