COLLEGE MAINTAINS FAIRTRADE STATUS

29th November 2017

City of Wolverhampton College’s ongoing commitment to helping farmers in poorer countries get a better deal has led to it being awarded Fairtrade Status for a further two years.

The college was first awarded the status in November 2015 and, following a recent review, the accolade has been extended until 2019 in recognition of the work it does to promote Fairtrade products across it campuses.

In order to achieve Fairtrade Status, the college had to show that it meets five goals – selling its products in on-site canteens and shops, providing Fairtrade coffee, tea and sugar at meetings, and running campaigns to increase the understanding and consumption of products, as well as developing a Fairtrade policy and steering group.

Rose Urkovskis, head of student services at the college, said: “We are committed to providing Fairtrade products at our sites and are delighted that we have been awarded Fairtrade Status for a further two year.”
