What does it mean to UTM to be Fair Trade?

  • All non- branded food service outlets on campus will offer Fair Trade coffee exclusively (Doi Chaang), Fair Trade Tea exclusively (Numi, Four O’Clock, & one more coming soon*), Fair Trade sugar exclusively (Camino) and 3 or more Fair Trade Chocolate bar options (Camino, Alter Eco, & Me to We chocolate is coming soon)

  • Throughout each academic year at UTM we will host a selection of Fair Trade events, including events such as Breakfast ‘n Learns, Lunch events, free product tastings, & giveaways. These events will not only provide an opportunity to try the products, but also be an opportunity to learn, ask questions, and be a part of something biger than UTM.
  • Fair Trade Campus Week will continue to be a celebration of Fair Trade and will serve to continue the conversation about Fair Trade initiatives for our campus
  • Our Fair Trade Steering Committee will govern how we move forward with implementing Fair Trade initiatives on campus
  • Every year we will commit to reconfirming our designation through Fair Trade Canada and we will commit to adding more Fair Trade certified products to our campus.
