Fair Trade at UC - Sustainability - University of Canterbury - New Zealand

Fair Trade at UC

UC has been recognised by the Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand as a Fair Trade University, one of only two in New Zealand, and the first entirely Fair Trade campus.

All UC staff lunchrooms and kitchens now exclusively stock Fair Trade tea and coffee. All cafés across the entire campus offer a range of Fair Trade coffee, tea and hot drinking chocolate, as well as Fair Trade chocolate.

The more we support Fair Trade, the greater the positive impact we have on the lives of small-scale producers all over the world. Buying Fair Trade helps create a better life for growers, workers, artisans and clothing cooperatives through long-term job sustainability, fair working conditions and funding for health care, education and other social development in their communities.
