New business offering healthy lunches launched in partnership with University
A new business providing nutritious lunches at venues across Liverpool has been launched in partnership with the University.
‘Bite Club’ provides fresh meals made daily, using superfood ingredients. Bite Club Café has now been established at the University’s Sports Centre, the Accelerator Building on Liverpool Health Campus, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, and the Royal and Broadgreen Hospitals.
Matthew Evans came up with the concept of Bite Club whilst studying for an MBA at the University of Liverpool in 2015.
Matthew said: “We know that the food we eat has a fundamental impact on health, brain power, sleep and the immune system. We are delighted to be working with the University of Liverpool bringing healthy food choices to students and staff.”
Matthew and his team have made efforts to ensure Bite Club is an environmentally sustainable green business with a low carbon footprint. Packaging is compostable and leftover consumable food is donated to the White Chapel and Missionaries of Charity homeless shelters.
Bite Club has also invested in a mobile app and bike delivery service. Matthew said “The app is a really convenient educational platform. Customers can click and collect from one of our outlets or have their food delivered to their desk. Either way they can look at the nutritional information breakdown of their food through the app – micronutrients as well as macronutrients.”
Since October, Bite Club has been engaging with students on campus in several ways – providing shirt sponsorships for sports performance teams and athletes, providing work-based projects to MBA students in the Management School and helping the School of Arts deliver a Health and Wellbeing Programme for Chinese students.
