Carleton receives three-star SPE Certification

January 9, 2019

Carleton University’s student dining hall has earned the first three-star SPE Certification to be awarded to a Canadian post-secondary institution. Carleton states that SPE Certification is a food service industry standard that investigates operational priorities, product sourcing, menu offerings, preparation techniques, environmental stewardship programs, and more. “The SPE certification is a rigorous, third-party process that requires institutions to demonstrate their commitment to providing healthy food – through purchasing, preparation, and choices – in their dining halls,” said Holly Sharpe, a registered dietitian with Carleton Dining Services. “By achieving three-star certification in the caf – the highest certification possible – Carleton has shown that we are operating at a gold standard.”
