We have used the summer to freshen up the University of Zurich's gastronomy. From September 1st, 2021, there will be the following renewals in our UZH establishments:

Expansion of vegan-vegetarian offer
A predominantly plant-based diet has been proven to be environmentally and climate friendly. As a catering company, we take our responsibility towards our environment seriously and are putting vegan-vegetarian catering in the foreground at UZH establishments. What does this mean in concrete terms?

-    At least 50% of the daily offerings in the menu lines are vegan or vegetarian:

  • In the three large locations Mensa UZH Zentrum, Irchel and Binzmühle there is one vegan, one vegetarian and one meat menu line every day.
  • In the smaller locations there is a vegan or vegetarian menu line (alternating) and a second menu line with meat every day.

-    We have 2 vegan, 3 vegetarian and 3 meat sandwiches on offer. The monthly sandwich is vegan or vegetarian.
-    Our breads are 100% vegan.
-    Our salad buffets are 100% vegan or vegetarian, meat is only available in surplus to avoid food waste.
-    Vegan toppings are newly introduced in the salad buffets.

100% IP-Suisse meat
In our menu lines, we now use 100% Swiss meat that has been awarded the IP Suisse quality label. The Swiss label stands for environmentally friendly and responsibly produced food as well as near-natural and species-appropriate animal husbandry.

Reduced fish offer
Fish and shellfish are no longer offered in the menu lines, but only selectively. The fish and shellfish used are 100% Swiss. In this way, we are sending an active signal against overfishing of the oceans.

No hidden animal products
To avoid hidden animal products, we only use vegan bouillon and vegan basic sauces in our kitchens.

Organic cow's milk and coffee cream
We now only use organic cow's milk and organic coffee cream.

100% IP-Suisse bread
Our bread is 100% certified with the IP-Suisse quality seal.

Vegetables
We are actively committed to reducing food waste and are strengthening our cooperation with Centrale Végétale. The Zurich-based association rescues misshapen, discarded vegetables from local farmers and we use them to create tasty menus.

TWINT
TWINT will now be accepted as a means of payment in UZH establishments from the autumn semester 2021.

Platte 14: Delivery
Platte 14's fine menus and goodies can now be ordered online and delivered directly to your home or place of work or study.

Moderate price increase
The increase in sustainability and quality in the gastronomy offer will lead to a moderate price adjustment, as already communicated. In addition to the prices of the main menu lines, the prices of the secondary offerings will also be increased slightly. The following table provides an overview: LINK (PDF, 36 KB)
