Sustainability: Green Partners

Howling Cow Dairy Products – NC State’s Own

Sustainability at University Dining | Howling Cow

University Dining serves milk and ice cream in the dining halls that is processed at NC State’s dairy under the new name: Howling Cow. Using fresh milk from the local NC State research farms, the on-campus dairy plant processes the milk and delivers whole, skim, and chocolate milk as well as ice cream, to University Dining locations, where it is enjoyed by students, faculty, staff and visitors. As an added treat, we also serve hand-dipped Howling Cow ice cream at the Emporium C-Store in Talley Student Center and Creamery located at D.H. Hill library.

Neomonde Baking Company

Sustainability at University Dining | Neomonde

In 2009, our dining halls began featuring pita bread, dinner rolls, and artisan sandwich bread from Neomonde Baking Company, a Triangle-based bakery and Mediterranean deli. Neomonde uses natural products with the highest quality ingredients. Neomonde’s large variety of breads and strong shelf life reduces the company’s cost and waste.

NC Choices

Sustainability at University Dining | NC Choices

University Dining works with North Carolina Choices, a group that promotes local products, to feature pasture-raised pork sausage and ham at the dining halls. Robin Stout, from NC Choices, brought one of the local farmers to Clark Dining Hall to answer questions from students about the programs. University Dining displayed its promotional materials and ran a slideshow on the digital displays in Fountain Dining Hall.
