As the UK’s professional body for university and college catering, we work in a number of different ways to enable our members to develop and achieve sustainability in every sense of the word. Our framework agreements continue to play a vital role in enabling institutions to achieve value for money and over last financial year secured more than £8.6m in cost savings. This was shown in the personalised Value for Money Reports, which all our Full Members received this week.
TUCO members are benefitting from being part of a network with ever more opportunities to learn from peers and draw on insight at home and abroad. Our summer and winter conferences go from strength to strength and the TUCO Competitions have grown into a highly respected showcase for the talent found across in-house catering teams.
Over the last two years TUCO Academy has come to the fore, providing a growing range of courses both site based and online. The Academy is also now playing a leading role in shaping and delivering our popular programme of study tours. As with all aspects of TUCO’s work, our success stems from having a highly engaged membership, whether it’s through our regional groups or conferences. By working together, we can equip in-house catering departments with the skills, insight and tools to continue to thrive.
