The Students' Union and UWE Bristol awarded Fairtrade University status

The Students' Union and UWE Bristol have had their Fairtrade University status renewed for a further two years, after receiving some highly positive comments from the Fairtrade Foundation. 

The renewal represents a combined effort by so many people at the university and within The Students' Union, including our students' academic and practical input, as well as our shops' and cafes' product and supply promotion. 

The Students' Union is committed to using and selling Fairtrade products across all of their shops and bars on university campuses, with over 70 products in stock. The Students' Union also commits to sourcing Fairtrade products when purchasing, for example, across staff uniforms, merchandise, etc. 

The audit stated that the University and The Students' Union's dedication to Fairtrade products was "hugely impressive", so a big thank you to all who support this on campus.
