Sweet success for UEL and Fairtrade products
New students at the University of East London (UEL) were recently treated to some homemade cake to celebrate one year as a Fairtrade accredited institution.
The UEL said it had increased the number of Fairtrade products available in its catering outlets and vending machines.
Promotions have included a lecture on Fairtrade cotton and activities for new students.
This year, Fairtrade Fortnight starts on February 27.
Energy and environment minister Sara Kassam said: “It’s great news that UEL has been re-accredited.
