Manchester Met launches discounted organic veg bag scheme

As part of the Healthy University Initiative, Manchester Met has launched a partnership with Manchester Veg People to offer all staff  and students convenient access to delicious, fresh, organic, locally grown produce through an on-campus veg scheme.

Manchester Metropolitan University will pilot the scheme for staff with the aim to offer this to students soon. In order to receive your veg bag, orders must be placed by Tuesday to be delivered the following Thursday when Manchester Veg People will be on site. Two collection points have been set up for the scheme at Birley and at the All Saints Business School.


Please see the Manchester Veg People website for full details about the scheme, the collection points, and the exclusive discounted prices being offered to Manchester Metropolitan University. A dedicated page has been set up here. To access the website, use the password ‘tastyveg’. To order you will need to join and pay a small registration fee of £1.95 for a year. Please use your email when signing up.

Manchester Veg People are a local cooperative working to increase the sustainable production and distribution of locally grown, organic vegetables to the people of Greater Manchester.
