Final-Stroganoff_20140117_german_v4_druckMensa Event: Beyond your meal – where does your food come from?

When: 27 January to 31 January 2014

Where: Mensa I (Rempartstr. 18, Freiburg), Mensa II (Stefan-Meier-Str. 28, Freiburg)


MSc Environmental Governance (MEG) students have traced the production chain of two (popular/regular) Mensa dishes. We wanted to know:

Where do the ingredients for these two dishes come from?

What stages of production do they go through before the final dish arrives on our plates?

You will find on large-scale posters what we have found out about the production chain for the dish Masala aubergine-carrots-ragout with rice, dip and green salad and the Stroganoff with ribbon noodles and green salad.

Enjoy the food for thought!
