The University of Leeds has held Fairtrade University status since 2005. There are many fairly traded products available on the market. However, the University's Fairtrade status refers to its commitment to promoting and supporting Fairtrade as awarded by the Fairtrade Foundation. This is an annual assessment process and we are pleased to announce that we have once again been awarded Fairtrade status for 2010.
Fairtrade is an international certification system that ensures disadvantaged farmers and workers in developing countries get a better deal through social and environmental standards plus the Fairtrade premium to invest in improving the lives of their families and communities.
The FAIRTRADE Mark is an independent consumer label which appears on a range of retail and catering products which meet international Fairtrade standards set by the body Fairtrade Labelling Organisations International (FLO).
Why not order Fairtrade tea and coffee for your office and have it delivered by our catering staff.
We have a large selection of items available:
25th February 2010 - 10:30am until 16:00pm, University of Leeds Fairtrade Fair.
The fair is being held in the first week of 'fairtrade fortnight' in the Riley Smith building (in the Student Union). This year's theme is 'the big swap' where people are encouraged to swap their usual stuff for fairtrade stuff.
