Research Interests

We have done a lot on Sustainability at St John's College. We use cleaning materials that are made from plant life, the first place to do this outside of Scotland. Our disposables are made from plant life as well. We use keep cups and were the first venue in Cambridge to use these. We measure our Food Waste using a system called Chefs Eye, one of the first places outside of London to use this. We use seaweed in our recipes, we have done this since 2015.  

We are part of the SRA association with 2 stars, and part of Cambridge Fish Cities. We only buy energy efficient equipment and have given tours of the kitchen to show them the equipment. We use mainly local ingredients, and our products are freshly made. 

Cambridge researchers with relevant research or interests can become members of the network. If you are not a Cambridge researcher we'd be happy to send you our monthly newsletter.
