Loafers Deli 2023
Our sandwiches are the main attraction, made fresh daily and filled with sustainable and local ingredients. The artisan sandwiches are built on a variety of breads from Plymouth and Cornish bakeries. 
Every sandwich is handmade by our friendly, dedicated team who cater to meat, vegetarian and vegan diets, offering a variety of specials to suit your appetite and dietary requirements.
Enhance your meal with our value-packed meal deal option for just an additional £1.50 to the sandwich price. Take your pick from a selection of sweet and savoury snacks, refreshing soft drinks, and Starbucks coffee made with Fairtrade beans as we are the only cafe to serve Starbucks drinks on campus.

The traffic light labelling system 

The traffic light labelling system will tell you whether a food has high, medium or low amounts of fat, saturated fat, sugars and salt. It will also tell you the number of calories and kilojoules in that particular product: 
  • Energy (kilojoules kj) and calories (kcal) 
  • Fat
  • Saturates
  • Sugar
  • Salt
The image to the right shows the traffic light label found on some foods. The traffic light label is colour coded and shows that green is low in a particular nutrient, amber means medium and red is high in a nutrient. 
  • Red means the product is high in a nutrient and you should try to cut down, eat less often or eat smaller amounts
  • Amber means medium. If a food contains mostly amber, you can eat it most of the time.
  • Green means low. The more green lights a label displays, the healthier the food choice is. 

Reference intake indicators 

Reference Intake is shown in percentages and provides information on how the amount of fat, saturates, sugars and salts within that product fits into your daily recommended diet. 
In the case of this food label, the amount of sugar is 38% of the total recommended daily intake, therefore you should be careful of the amount of sugar consumed in other foods throughout the day.

Carbon emission labelling on menus 

We have added the carbon impact of our dishes on many of our menus to enable customers to make choices that are better for the planet. We understand that what we eat can have a big impact on the environment, with food production estimated to account for a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions. 
The carbon footprint figure was created using TUCO's innovative greenhouse gas footprint calculator. The calculator allows us to select ingredients, insert the relevant quantities and select where the product is sourced from. It looks at forms of transportation, energy consumption and direct emission factors to calculate the total greenhouse gases and the emissions per serving in kilograms.

We display the amount of greenhouse gases next to each item on the menu in kilograms per serving. 
You can find the carbon emission labels next to certain items on our menus in the following cafes on campus: 
We are working hard behind the scenes to update more items on our menus.
