In spring 2022, a survey on the catering was conducted together with AStA and Studierendenwerk Dortmund.

Nutrition is a relevant building block for more sustainability. Therefore, together with the Studierendenwerk and the AStA, a survey was conducted to find out what the eating habits of visitors to the refectories are like, what they want from university catering and how important sustainability, animal welfare and environmental protection should be in the menus.

More than 3000 TU members took part in the survey. Most said they were satisfied overall and used the catering services several times a week. About 33% of the participants eat vegetarian, 14% vegan. Accordingly, there were mainly suggestions and wishes for an increased vegan/vegetarian offer. The majority was also in favour of labelling with a CO2 balance.

You can find the entire evaluation in the article on the canteen survey.
