BaxterStorey unveils vegan café at The Royal College of Art

BaxterStorey has launched its first entirely vegan café at The Royal College of Art in its flagship Kensington Campus.

It opened the café in response to requests from the Student Union for an outlet to cater for the increasing number of vegans and vegetarians in the student population.

“Business development manager, Martin Holden-White, said: “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.

“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.”

With over 2300 students enrolled at the university, a number set to increase in the coming years, the café was designed in collaboration with the Student Union’s president and with support from Bentley Consulting.

With most students based on campus and working from design studios throughout the day, the new vegan hot spot will offer fresh snacks, such as sprouting broccoli and tofu toasties, coconut and apricot protein balls and homemade hot falafels with beetroot hummus.

As the first vegan-only café in the BaxterStorey portfolio, there are ambitions to expand the theme to the Battersea campus when it opens in 2020.

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