your gastro facilities
at uni siegen
In our gastronomic facilities, we try to reconcile economic efficiency and ecology. We want to offer you a sustainable style of eating that follows ecological, sustainable and social principles at an affordable price.
In the campus catering of the Studierendenwerk Siegen, a team of almost 130 dedicated colleagues works to process regional and seasonal products into enjoyable and wholesome meals in the most resource-conserving way possible.
We already process a good 24 tonnes of food from controlled organic cultivation in our facilities every year. Fresh meat, milk, baked goods and fresh vegetables are largely sourced directly from regional suppliers.
Our entire coffee and tea range comes from fair trade and certified organic cultivation.
We have completely converted our take-away business to reusable systems. With our deposit-free LogiCup coffee cups and the deposit-free, digital reusable system VYTAL, you can enjoy our to-go offerings completely without packaging waste.
Since April 2021, we have been supporting the broiler initiative of the Albert Schweitzer Foundation (www.masthuhn-initiative.de). The initiative originates from an association of around 30 animal welfare organisations with the essential goal of improving the keeping of broiler chickens.
Sustainable. Climate-friendly. Responsible. Delicious!
Our canteen at the Adolf-Reichwein-Straße campus was once again awarded 3 stars by the animal protection organisation Peta in August 2023 as one of the most vegan-friendly canteens in Germany. Changing vegan dishes, a permanent range of vegan desserts and a salad bar in the Mensa AR as well as the offer of plant-based milk and vegan spreads in the cafeterias reflect the growing desire of many students for a meat-free and climate-friendly diet.
The Studierendenwerk is certified organic. The organic seal stands for the use of food from organic agriculture and organic food processing. We use a variety of organic products in our catering operations.
Our entire coffee and tea range is organic and fair trade certified. The ingredients of our “Lemonaid Lemonade” are also organically grown and come from fair trade.
The Fairtrade seal stands for the fact that all ingredients available from fair production have been traded entirely in accordance with the rules of the Fairtrade standards that apply worldwide. In this way, smallholder cooperatives receive more stable prices, more long-term and transparent trading relationships, and an additional premium for community projects. The standards also include criteria on democratic organizational structures, environmental protection and safe working conditions. The focus is always on the producers.
Broiler chicken initiative of the Albert Schweitzer Foundation
We have joined the broiler chicken initiative of the Albert Schweitzer Foundation. The initiative originates from an alliance of around 30 animal welfare organisations with the essential aim of improving the keeping of broiler chickens. Important animal welfare aspects such as a lower stocking density, the restriction of over-breeding as well as minimum standards for light and manipulable material are implemented. For us as the Studierendenwerk, it is important to put more emphasis on the issue and also to set ourselves clear goals. Until meat is available that meets all the criteria of the European Broiler Chicken Initiative, the Studierendenwerk will make use of similar offers such as the entry level of the German Animal Welfare Association and gradually increase their share in the assortment.
The Studierendenwerk Siegen will implement the requirements of the European Broiler Chicken Initiative for all its catering facilities by 2026. The Studierendenwerk publishes annual reports on the progress of the implementation and has independent controls ensure compliance with the standards.
