    Sigh! They have swallowed the lure without really thinking it through.

    What about freedom of choice? Students, lecturers, all support staff and visitors have the right to make up their own minds. Let me take in a steak sandwich made with a chaffles.

    Another example of certain parts of our society presuming they know best what is good for the rest of us. Extremely patronising and the first question I would be asking is for them to quantify their maths.

    On a more encouraging note I learnt recently that Fresh Range is starting to supply Bristol uni. They sell locally and sustainably produced food. When they proposed this they were told that students wouldn’t want such food to which their response was - how do you know they’ve never been offered it? Hopefully students will appreciate it...
    More generally they are also supplying meat sold through a new social enterprise called Farm Wilder from farms in Devon committed to having their livestock 100% pasture fed within 3 years and working to restore wildlife. While they deliver locally they have now got a system to deliver nationwide though I don’t know how that works. I highly recommend them and know they are also working hard to influence the procurement systems of public bodies.

    Thank you Jane. That looks like a really worthwhile project. I have subscribed to their newsfeed and hope to learn more about them.

    Encourging indeed after the news from Cambridge.

    Like the sound of that project Jane.

    Agree Cambridge uni should arguably know better!
