DGE Certification "JOB&FIT

The German Nutrition Society (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ernährung e.V. (DGE) has confirmed that Casino Campus Nord offers lunch and snacks in its staff restaurant that meet the required criteria of the "DGE Quality Standard for Catering in Companies".

  • Meal planning & production
  • Hygiene aspects / legal framework / QM system
  • Living environment

All meals and products are marked in the menu, as well as in the award, with.

What is the aim of the DGE quality standard?

The DGE quality standard supports the catering managers in designing a health-promoting and sustainable catering offer in at least one menu line in the company. Thus, the table guests can choose from a corresponding offer in the context of breakfast, snack and lunch.

The DGE quality standard describes, based on current scientific data, the criteria for optimal, health-promoting and sustainable catering. Each company can implement this quality standard at its own pace, step by step. Every improvement of the catering quality means a healthier and more sustainable nutrition for the employees. The majority of the criteria relate to the design of the catering. These criteria are presented along the process chain with the five steps of planning, purchasing, preparation, serving, disposal and cleaning. These process steps offer the potential to significantly influence the nutritional quality of food and beverages as well as to set the course for sustainable nutrition.

Reusable tableware to take away

As an alternative to our previously offered, sustainable disposable packaging made of sugar cane fibres, you can now take your food with you in high-quality reusable dishes for a deposit of € 10.00 per dish.

This is the next step towards sustainable packaging and a further reduction in packaging waste.

Since the introduction on 20.04. until 06.07.2021 we could already save more than 5000 disposable packaging made of sugar cane fibres.

Packaging material

From small side salads to schnitzels, we can offer you all our dishes in sustainable disposable packaging for takeaway. We at Casino Campus Nord place great value on sustainability and therefore use packaging materials made from sugar cane fibres.

When the sugar cane is juiced, a large amount of fibre is produced - a residual material that has remained unused until now. However, this biomass is extremely valuable for the production of natural disposable tableware and packaging. The packaging material made from sugar cane is light and yet very stable. At the same time, it is water-resistant, suitable for hot and cold dishes and can be used in the microwave, the oven and the microwave oven. and can be used in the microwave, oven and freezer. The 100% biodegradable packaging material according to EN 13432 is produced close to the raw material source in order to reduce transport routes to a minimum and additionally protect the climate.

Plastics areonly used at the casino where it is necessary for hygienic and other reasons.


Electric cars are the future. We use an electric car for deliveries to events at KIT.

The car reaches a maximum speed of 85 km/h and has a range of 80 km.

The continuous/peak power of our electric car is 34 kW/ 48 kW.

The vehicle has a hygienic and food-safe cargo hold with a capacity of 5.68m³. It is designed for the transport of foodstuffs in accordance with the requirements and regulations of the Food Hygiene Ordinance and HACCP standards.

Sustainable, ecological and archivable

In our cash register systems we use thermal paper that is made from a base paper from the sustainable wood industry. Instead of a chemical reaction to heat, the development of writing on the thermal paper is a purely physical process. The opaque functional layer of the paper becomes transparent due to the influence of the heat and the underlying black layer becomes visible.

The thermal paper is approved for direct contact with foodstuffs and can be disposed of in waste paper with a clear conscience after use.

The writing on the thermal paper is resistant to sunlight, which means that the receipt can be stored for at least 35 years without fading. Copying of sales slips is therefore unnecessary. In addition, the paper is resistant to softeners and can be placed in plastic sleeves without any problems.
