Suppliers and Products

We seek to reduce the negative impact of what we do as much as possible, but more than that we seek to find ways in which to make a positive, influential difference through our choices, actions and offer.

Our café bar and restaurant offer seasonally available produce from regional suppliers and support local business using North West producers supplying dairy, fruit and vegetables, meat, sustainably sourced fish, ales and snacks. We prepare the majority of our food from scratch on site, and we have a great selection of vegetarian and vegan choices. If you’re opting for event catering or choosing items from the Take HOME menu, our takeaway food packaging is fully recyclable. In line with our Zero-to-Landfill policy, all in-house catering waste is composted, recycled or converted into Waste-to-Energy biofuel.

Our sustainable procurement policy ensures that we minimise the carbon footprint of our suppliers, products and services wherever possible. We regularly review our suppliers, creating a sustainable tendering process for operational activities, working with supporting initiatives such as Green Business Growth to continue to build on our efforts and commitments.

Our in-house independent publications company Cornerhouse Publications, distributes specialist contemporary visual arts books and its catalogue features a great range art, ecology and climate change themed products. Our Granada Foundation Galleries regularly display the works of local artists and creatives, and our ground floor bookshop supports local and independent makers, selling products ranging from prints, zines, books and journals to cards and gifts.
