“By choosing a One Planet Plate in a SU-Eatable Life canteen, you can be sure that you’re choosing a dish which has a low impact on the environment.“
SU-Eatable Life is a project focused on increasing choices of sustainable food in canteens.
The SRA, alongside our partners, are working with the University of Worcester, City University (London), Deluxe & Fooditude, and L&Q & Artizian Catering to encourage their canteen users to learn about, and choose, sustainable dishes.
One Planet Plate
To help customers identify what is and isn’t a sustainable dish, we are displaying the ‘One Planet Plate’ logo against dishes which qualify under our criteria.
These criteria are based on carbon and water footprints, which have been carefully calculated by our scientific team. By choosing a One Planet Plate in a SU-Eatable Life canteen, you can be sure that you’re choosing a dish which has a low impact on the environment.
If you’re interested in learning more about the SU-Eatable Life project, including the project partners and the aims, please visit the website.

The SRA also runs One Planet Plate as a campaign outside of the SU-Eatable Life project, with different criteria. For more information about One Planet Plate usage with restaurants and other food service businesses, please click the ‘Learn More’ button at the top of the One Planet Plate homepage.
