Back to articles

The University Catering Organisation (TUCO) Conference takes place this month at the University of Nottingham, from 24th until the 26th July and we’ll be exhibiting – you can visit us on stand 133.

The three-day event showcases some of the university catering biggest names and includes keynote speakers who will share their knowledge and expertise for anybody operating in the industry.

Always a fun, fascinating and full of new information and insights, this is a three-day conference that anybody with a vested interest in university catering should attend.

Here at Big Al’s, we’ve got a lot of experience in helping universities improve their food offer. We understand that institutions are competing with high street brands to deliver high-quality food and service that will convince their students to stay on site while they eat.

Equally, this service needs to be delivered on a budget that matches students’ needs – gourmet food is all well and good, but if it can’t be delivered within a competitive price point, students will never buy into it.

Finally, students are on the go. Whether rushing between lectures or grabbing food before they head out for the evening, students are far less rigid in terms of set meal times and sit down dinners.

This makes our product range the perfect match for any university caterer keen to increase the uptake of their food offer within the university campus. Most products cook from frozen in just minutes, meaning they’re quick to prepare and can be served to even the busiest student as they hurtle towards that morning lecture. With products like our Italian Twist Pizzas being served in handheld packaging, we’ve got all bases covered for the perfect on-the-go offer.

Combine this with our branded concept solutions and you’ll be able to entice students into your university venue with bold, eye-catching branding and deliver on quality with the product range we offer.

We have a solution for all university caterers and are keen to share our own knowledge and expertise, so be sure to pay us a visit at this year’s TUCO conference, see you there!
