Food services

Universidad de las Américas Puebla, through the Food Services Department, acknowledges the importance of fomenting a healthy lifestyle in its community members.  Thus, it is committed to providing food products and services that strictly adhere to the highest standards of quality and hygiene to meet the needs of all diets of the university community.

The Food Services Department makes a constant effort to update its menus taking into account the changing needs of a diverse and dynamic community. Campus food facilities and cafeterias are spaces where students have an opportunity to relax, socialize, and enjoy healthy and nutritious food.

H Distinction

The Food Services Department has been certified with the “H” Distinction, a seal of approval from the Secretary of Tourism and the Secretary of Health, to those food and drink establishments that comply with the hygiene standards demanded by the NMX-F605 NORMEX 2004 Mexican Norm.  Meeting this norm guarantees quality and hygiene in preparing the food offered to the university community.

The “H” program is 100% preventive, which allows foreseeing contamination that could cause foodborne disease.

Every consumer expects to find in UDLAP’s dining hall safely handled food of excellent quality, free of any risk for them or his/her family.
