Taste Manchester

Our Ethics

One Water

Taste Manchester only stock One Water, an ethical bottled water that donates all of its profits to fund PlayPump® water systems in Africa. It costs no more than other water brands, but buying One Water generates money to build PlayPump® water systems which supply free and clean water to people who previously had to walk up to 10km to their nearest, often contaminated, water supply.


Taste Manchester only serves Fairtrade tea, coffee, sugar, orange and apple juice. This makes a huge difference to the lives of the producers of these products, their families and communities as it ensures they get a fair price for their produce.

Free Range

Taste Manchester only use free range eggs and British farm assured chicken in their cooking.


Taste Manchester exclude fish species identified as most “at risk” by the Marine Conservation Society.

Environmental Impact

To minimise the impact of our operation on the environment Taste Manchester operate a sustainable procurement policy which means we purchase locally produced items where possible. Taste Manchester also recycles all the waste oil, cardboard, cans, paper, glass, batteries and plastics used on a daily basis.

Food Waste

Taste Manchester are committed to keeping food waste to a minimum and as a result we work closely with our customers to try and make sure they are ordering the right amount of food for the numbers attending their meeting or event. It is inevitable that some food will be left over every now and again and as a result University Catering are working alongside a number of local charities who may be able to take left over food that has been stored correctly.
