The Free University of Bozen-Bolzano canteens, run by leading catering service provider Markas, have been awarded with the “Mensa Verde” (Green Canteen) Award during the Forum Compraverde for the commitment in offering high-quality products (organic, local, seasonal and fair-trade) and reducing the environmental and social impacts of the service.Since 2005 Markas runs the two canteens of the University of Bolzano and has focused on several sustainability aspects: from the purchase of regional and local products to the express preparation of meals, reducing largely the food waste. Moreover, Markas has promoted several initiatives to raise awareness on how to handle food and environment in a more conscious manner and gives great importance to recycling.

The newspaper “Corriere dell’Alto Adige” reports about this in its edition of October 18th, 2017.
