And what are the ingredients in the meals of the canteens?

Healthy nutrition is very important in the canteens. Most of the purchases are German food. Regional suppliers are preferred. We require from our meat and sausage suppliers a guarantee statement, which must show that the marketed animals were born and reared in Germany.

Our kitchen managers attach great importance to the preservation and dye-free food processing of the purchased goods (e.g., without phosphates). To flavour the dishes, the canteen chefs use only iodized table salt. All fresh and frozen goods are checked at their delivery to the legally prescribed inlet temperature and best before dates.

Hygiene is the essential point

In our canteens, the principles of the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points System (HACCP) are respected. In addition, a random check of the food by a specialist institute of the University of Göttingen takes place without prior notice. Samples of all food are kept for 10 days to prove their quality.

The Studentenwerk is against the use of genetically modified food. Therefore, we only use food and food products that do not contain genetically modified substances and are traceable within the meaning of EC regulations 1829/2003 and 1830/2003.

Environmental protection: Waste prevention comes before waste reduction

Where about 14,000 guests a day are to be cared for, there can be a lot of waste. The Studentenwerk has counteracted this for a long time with the concept of "Avoiding before Reduction".

We are increasingly focusing on bulk packs and reusable systems and do not rely solely on the "Green Dot". In addition, we have taken further measures:

  • Water and energy savings by replacing old appliances (e.g., dishwashers)
  • Demands on suppliers to use reusable containers
  • Delivery of the resulting fats depending on origin (frying fat, separator)

Finally, we rely on the active support of our guests, whom we provide with containers for waste separation and the collection of recyclables.
