What is Fairtrade?

The Fairtrade mark ensures the farmers are guaranteed a minimum price, decent working conditions and investment is made into their local communities.

Aston University has been a Fairtrade University since 2007.

What makes us a Fairtrade University?

We ensure that Fairtrade products are available in as many places as possible on campus; look out for Fairtrade coffee, snacks, juices and clothing in catering outlets across campus. 

We also hold a series of events each year during Fairtrade Fortnight; in the past we’ve done wine tasting, promotional stalls, baking competitions and even made Fairtrade smoothies by pedal power!
