Students can encourage their institution and its student union to stock Fairtrade goods, food and drink wherever possible.

Students, college and university staff are more interested than ever in knowing where the products they buy are from, how the raw materials are grown and who by. That includes knowing that the workers involved are not exploited.

Why and where to buy Fairtrade

For more information on why and where to buy Fairtrade see our National Fairtrade Purchasing Guide.

If your Students’ Union is a member of NUS, you can also contact their Ethical Supply Chain Coordinator directly for advice on which Fairtrade products can be bought through the NUS purchasing consortium.

Also visit our product pages to find information about the wide-range of goods that carry the FAIRTRADE Mark in the UK.
