A brief description of the sustainable food and beverage purchasing program:
Miami University currently purchases from 33 local/Ohio companies ranging from small farms to companies whose products are known globally. Many products are retail specific and sold in markets across campus, while others are ingredients that are used daily in our food preparation. In addition to local products, we have several retail markets on campus with a focus on organic items; both fresh produce as well as packaged snacks and canned and frozen entrees. The majority of coffee served on campus is third-party certified, with one location serving only Fair-Trade coffee.
