Fair Trade on Campus


SFU is proud to be recognized as the first University in Canada to be awarded Fair Trade Gold status, the highest level of designation 🏅🍫🍌☕️🍵🥑🌹👩‍🌾🌍

What does this mean? It means that SFU, and departments like SFU Dining, aim to make a positive difference in the lives of farmers, workers, and communities around the globe by paying fairer prices and ensuring decent working conditions.

Some of the Fair Trade products we use on campus include: Fair Trade chocolate, bananas, sugar, tea, coffee, cocoa + avocados.

From opening Canada's first Fair Trade Starbucks in 2013, to achieving Fair Trade Gold Status in 2020, we are proud to be pioneers for the Fair Trade movement in Canada and we look forward to what the next Fair Trade adventure will bring!
