Clearly Label Seafood Sold in Union Outlets

Sadly fishstocks worldwide are in decline, and university and it's students has a responsibility to stock sustainble caught fish or not serve them at all. 

At NOCs fish are clearly  MSC labelled, this should be adopted by the union so it is clear to the students the origins of their meal.

Hi, just to say that the new Bridge menu has a line in it letting customers know that all our fish is MSC standard!

Having spoken to our team, I can confirm that any fish we use in the Bridge is MSC standard, and when we next update our menus (around Easter), we will be adding a paragraph about sustainability, including sustainable fishing, so make that clear to students. We do not use any fish products in the Cafe, and in our own line of sandwiches that we stock in the Shop, the fish is MCS standard, and we are looking at adding this the ingredients list.

Thanks for your idea - this sounds like a great way to raise awareness of sustainable fishing. I will speak to the team who make our sandwiches and see if it's possible!
