Carbon Happy World, a leading provider of carbon footprint measurement and reduction solutions, is thrilled to announce its acceptance into the prestigious TUCO (The University Caterers Organisation) tendering framework for carbon footprint labelling on food and drink menus. TUCO is one of the members of the UKUPC (UK University Purchasing Consortium) and they supply the public sector with procurement leadership and management within catering. This framework serves as a trusted resource for UK public sector organisations seeking sustainable food procurement solutions.

Through its innovative Carbon Happy Cook app, Carbon Happy World empowers restaurants, cafeterias and food businesses to accurately calculate and display the carbon footprint of their menu ingredients and recipes. This vital information allows consumers to make informed choices while fostering greater transparency and accountability within the food industry.

By providing accessible and user-friendly carbon footprint labelling solutions, we aim to empower informed decision-making and accelerate the transition towards a more sustainable food system as the food industry globally accounts for 26% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.”
