Extra Information: 

Start selling pre-packaged meal prep dishes in the SU.

These meals should all start as vegetarian/vegan but come with simple instructions to teach how to add meats.

Allergens should be labelled on the front with obvious stickers as to what the meal is free from for ease to the consumer.


For example:

-- KATSU CURRY WITH STEAMED RICE -- Stickers (!!Wheat!!) (!!Mustard!!) (!!Soya!!) (Nut-Free) (Dairy Free) (1/5 Chillies) Pack Contains - Uncooked Rice, Katsu Curry (Contains Carrot, Onion, Potato, Katsu Curry Concentrate (Contains *Wheat, Mustard & Soya))



1) Boil the rice with 1 cup/140ml of water for 10-12 minutes or until light and fluffy

2) While your rice is cooking, dice your meat of choice and fry until cooked through.

3) Once your meat is cooked, turn the heat to medium and add this packet . Stir until at a boil.

4) Pour the rice and curry into a bowl & enjoy :D


Use recyclable containers or create a scheme where you get 'x' amount of your next purchase when you return a container.

Using a return scheme would incentivise students to keep eating healthier.


Operation Costs for the previous example (costs were calculated using Sainsbury's pricing):

Per Portion:

7p - carrot 110g

17p - potato 180g

13p - onion 100g

44p - Japanese Curry Sauce Concentrate 50g (405g/8 meaning price is £3.50/4) 45p - Thai Jasmine Rice 140g (£6.50 * 140/2000 bag is £6.50 for 2KG) 24p - HOT BARGAINS 250 x 750ml Kraft Paper Disposable (for Curry) 22p - HOT BARGAINS 250 x 500ml Kraft Paper Disposable (for Rice)


Total Cost for Materials: £1.72

Proposed sale price: £3.50 per pack

That's markup of over 200% on material cost which will easily cover labour costs and turn a profit.
