Dillon’s Vancouver office has been designated a Fair Trade Workplace by Fair Trade Canada. The Fair Trade Workplace Program recognizes offices that demonstrate a strong commitment to fair trade by making products available to their staff and visitors.
When a Fair Trade Workplace is designated, it supports fairer conditions and better prices for people in the Global South who grow and make our products: whether it's the coffee we drink, the cocoa in our chocolate, or the cotton in our shirts. It is a market-based system that uses consumer support to influence international trade practices, and is a powerful tool for change. Farmers and workers are empowered to create a better life for themselves and their communities, and enjoy sustainable livelihoods.
Achieving this designation helps Dillon to contribute to the company’s commitment to sustainability, the environment and the communities in which we live.
