Monday, June 5, 2017

St. Paul’s, in partnership with Watson’s Eatery, is proud to announce that we are now an officially certified Fair Trade campus. We have been serving fair trade coffee and other items for years, as well as implementing other sustainable and eco-friendly initiatives.

"Because we feel a strong connection with the core values of the Fair Trade mandate, we are continuously looking for ways to advance this ethic,” said Gita Bose, Food Services Unit Manager. “To apply for the actual certification just made sense.”
