More about our Partnership with Chartwells

Our Commitment with Chartwells

Our Food Service partner, Chartwells, orders products in small batches in order to decrease food waste and spoilage. They work closely with brands to understand best practices to ensure all ingredients are being treated in the best way to keep them fresh and edible.

The Chartwells contract states that they need to:

  • Be Fair Trade certified within 6 months of the commencement of the contract (this has been achieved)
  • Recycle 100% of fryer oil
  • Advocate recycling, composting, and waste management in all UTM locations
  • Offer discounts to customers who use reusable beverage containers and will offer reusable beverage containers for sale
  • Implement daily green cleaning programs in all UTM University locations
  • Source paper napkins and paper towels made from 100% recycled content
  • Source paper cup products from a minimum of 25% recycled content
  • Train food service staff on waste management and reduction strategies
  • Use bulk condiment dispensers where possible
  • Continue to use environmentally preferable packaging in all units
  • Adhere to the UTM’s bottled water policy at all times and in all units
