As you would expect, The Salvation Army and BaxterStorey consider the provenance of ingredients to be highly important. We have created our own set of guidelines regarding the way in which we choose our suppliers and conduct our business transactions. Initiatives we have pioneered include:
- BaxterStorey is the the first and only contract caterer to use entirely free range eggs – Freedom Food accredited
- No fish on IUCN red list is used on our menus and suppliers are prohibited from sourcing 'at risk' fish
- Suppliers are required to source fish from sustainable stocks
- All our fresh bakery products are made by local or regional bakers in the close proximity of the site
- Our ‘Down To Earth’ coffee comes from Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance accredited plantations
- Our liquid milk is produced from Red Tractor accredited farms
We Support Local Growers
By using local suppliers our chefs know they are supporting the environment through reduced transportation, environmentally sensitive farming methods and in some areas, specific initiatives to promote wildlife habitats. We are not limited to large national suppliers and always consider sustainability, environmental impact, food miles and the use of Fairtrade suppliers.
We Buy British
Our commitment to buying British food is growing ever stronger. We now buy 100% of our meat from UK sources and 80% of fruit and vegetables. We are proud of our local farms and work hard with our suppliers to forge strong relationships with them founded on trust, fairness and a passion for good food. Our reputation is built on the quality and freshness of our food and as such we are committed to letting people know where their food comes from and the quality we expect.
Café 101 is provided in association with BaxterStorey.
