The company, which provides catering services at both Uxbridge and Hayes campuses, was presented with a Good Egg Award by the Compassion in World Farming Trust. The award was picked up by Azize Ludlow, Business Excellence Manager for Chartwells, London, and Sara Djili, Vice Principal - Finance and Corporate Services at Uxbridge College.

The College uses around 9,000 eggs each year and has committed itself to making every single one free range.

The ceremony was attended by twice Michelin starred chef Paul Merrett and held at Oxford Brookes University. The 'Good Awards' recognised the commitment of universities and colleges from all over the country to sourcing higher welfare eggs and chickens across their catering.

In addition to introducing 100% free range eggs and 100% free range milk, Chartwells at Uxbridge College supports ethical farming by selling only fair trade coffee through their Café Direct outlets at the Uxbridge Campus, and backing the Rainforest Alliance by hosting a Costa Coffee concession at the Hayes campus. They also offer a range of other fair trade products at both campuses.

Ms Ludlow said: "I'm proud of the award, my team's proud of it and we're proud of the work that we've done at Uxbridge College to win it. Animal welfare and ethical farming is something Chartwells - and the staff and students who are our customers - take seriously. Our plan is to develop the range of ethical products and practices at Uxbridge College."

Ms Djili said: "Alongside Uxbridge College's commitment to providing our learners with the highest standard of education, training and support, we also take our social and ethical responsibilities very seriously. Chartwells' Good Egg Award is a valuable achievement and a welcome acknowledgment of the College's ongoing contribution to its wider environment."

Mr Merrett said: "It was a fantastic night, full of catering staff who were proud to be a part of Compassion's movement towards ending factory farming for good. Switching to free-range eggs and higher welfare chickens is simply the most sustainable thing to do from an ethical, social and environmental perspective and I fully support Compassion's 'Good Awards'."

Chartwells is part of the Compass Group, the world's leading food service company.
