UEA Food Co-op
UEA Food Co-op is a student-run initiative offering organic, fair trade and ethical dry goods at wholesale price. They bulk buy from a wholesaler, and operate on a not-for-profit basis selling products weekly alongside the organic vegbox scheme.
Products include grains and pulses, flour, dried fruit and nuts, tinned tomatoes, peanut butter and baked beans, but food co-op members can also request products they wish to buy through a stock request form.
Recently, the UEA Food Co-op has successfully established themselves as the campus zero-waste hub, and has grown their team of volunteers to cater to a growing number of customers at the stall. The team report feeling "a huge sense of pride" from running the stall, and their Treasurer has just been elected as Environment Officer!
