A major catering company has opened a vegan café at the Royal College of Art’s flagship Kensington campus in London.

The outlet, opened by BaxterStorey, follows requests from the Student Union for the catering for the increasing number of vegan and vegetarianstudents.

It was designed in collaboration with the Student Union’s President and with support from Bentley Consulting, and will offer an ‘all-day grazing menu’ including sprouting broccoli and tofu toasties and multiple plant-based milks.


“We are delighted to be working with the Royal College of Art and to have brought this exciting new space to their iconic Kensington campus,”
Business Development Manager Martin Holden-White said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“We are very aware of the rapid growth in plant-based food trends and it was fantastic to work alongside such a passionate student union and a forward-thinking consultant in David Bentley, which allowed us to be creative and offer students a greater choice of nutritious and varied foods to fit their study patterns.”

‘Super happy’

“We’re super happy to have a dedicated vegan café on site,” added Benji Jeffrey, a member of the student union at Royal College of Arts.

“Students are increasingly aware of the impact we leave on the planet with many moving towards more sustainable diets.

“It’s great to have a space on campus that is suited to their needs.”
