News: Bidvest 3663 and Delphis supply cleaning products to Plymouth University
Bidvest 3663 has teamed up with environmentally-friendly chemical manufacturer Delphis Eco to supply cleaning products with a reduced environmental impact to Plymouth University.
Monday, 25th April 2016
Bidvest 3663, a UK foodservice provider, is supplying cleaning products to 12 outlets on the Plymouth University campus produced by Delphis Eco that manufactures EU Ecolabelled products in the UK. The products are all plant based to make them sustainable, which makes them ideal for the catering industry.
Bidvest 3663 has been supplying Plymouth University with foodservice items since August 2013. Plymouth University selected Delphis Eco products as part of its commitment to sustainable operations. It was awarded a three star University Catering Rating by the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) in July 2014 and aims to build on this. Developed by the SRA and The University Caterers Organisation (TUCO), the accolade recognises the achievements of university caterers and was developed to drive best practice in the sector.
The SRA is one of Bidvest 3663’s strategic partners and they have collaborated since 2011. Since then, both organisations have continued to work together to improve sustainability within the foodservice industry.
Shirley Duncalf, head of sustainability at Bidvest 3663 said: "We know that sustainability is a priority for foodservice operators and it is especially important for the higher education sector as 80% of students believe that sustainable development should be incorporated and promoted by universities."
