SPE Certified & UMass Amherst to Partner on Healthy Dining Options
November 21, 2012
SPE Certified is thrilled to announce that it will be partnering with UMass Amherst to review over 190 recipes and create SPE-certified meal combinations for its dining halls, beginning in January 2013.
UMass Dining Services is the 2nd largest campus dining operation in the nation with 16,500 students on various meal plans, and serves more than 40,000 meals daily. Its award-winning dining program is perfectly aligned with SPE Certified’s ethos of providing healthy AND delicious food -- which was developed by chefs and dietitians and validated by world-renowned nutrition experts. Ken Toong and his top-flight team have an obvious passion for food, as well as a single-minded focus to provide students with convenience, flexibility and variety in the university’s well-balanced meal options.
After cracking the top 10 last year, UMass was named #3 best campus food in the 2013 edition of the Princeton Review’s Best 377 Colleges. Given that UMass Dining is clearly driven to improve, SPE Certified is confident that its unique nutritional and culinary philosophy of creating nutrient-dense dishes which are rich in flavor will help enhance the university’s current, high-quality offerings.
