Fairtrade Fortnight on campus

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.

Fairtrade Fortnight runs from 25th February to 10th March 2019. For these two weeks of the year, thousands of individuals, companies and groups across the UK come together to celebrate the people who grow food and support them through buying Fairtrade products.

This year the campaign focus is on the people – in particular the women – who grow the Fairtrade products that we enjoy every day.

Fairtrade products are sold in Eat & Shop outlets across campus and to support the campaign, we're running some fun activities during the fortnight:

  • Regular hot drink and Fairtrade banana loaf cake deal
  • Celebrating and highlighting the Fairtrade products sold on campus
  • A stand in the Forum Street on 7th March with competitions and £1 coffee voucher giveaways
  • Two special guests from the Fairtrade Windward Islands Farmers Association will be on the stand from 11:30am - 12:30pm
