At HUU we understand the importance of our role within the wider world, which is why we are committed to working together in supporting, using and promoting Fairtrade products.

You can view our full policy online here or take a look at the key ways in which we are supporting Fairtrade below.

More information on on Fairtrade can be found via their website.

Steering Group

A representative of HUU sits on a University wide group that helps implement the policy, and submits a progress report to the University Ethics Committee, HUU Union Council and the Fairtrade Foundation.

Sale of Fairtrade products

Where possible HUU will offer Fairtrade products at all catering and retail outlets, increasing the selection available year on year.


We offer Fairtrade products at things like meetings and conferences - so all those tasty cups of tea are good to go!

Promotion and Campaigning

We get ourselves involved in big campaigns like 'Fairtrade Fortnight' by promoting it through events and media.
