    Fairtrade School Tuck Shop

    With Fairtrade fortnight round the corner, why not join other schools up and down the country with your own fairtrade tuck shop. This is proving a great way to get kids involved with the running of the shop so that they gain practical skills while supporting fairtrade at the same time—a true win-win.

    We have a minimal mark-up policy in place in the hope this will persuade more people to try ethical products and are therefore confident that you will get the best possible prices from us.

    Also, we stock a huge range of fairtrade branded products from Café Direct / Clipper for your tea / coffee for the staff room to Divine Chocolate / Traidcraft / Jelly Beans and many, many more for your tuck shop stocks.

    The audit can be done straight away… simply take the questionnaire round to different people in your school for answers.
