Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Fair trade lentils in Malawi - findings from MSc student placements

Javier Ureña Palencia, MSc International Business and Emerging Markets and Lauren Opstad, MSc Environment and Development, will talk about their experiences on placement in Malawi this summer, looking at fair trade lentils supply chains – including impacts on livelihoods, and value chain analysis.


The project has been organised in collaboration between the Business School, School of Geosciences, Department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability, and Just Trading Scotland, who work with farmer associations in Malawi. The University buys fair trade rice from Just Trading Scotland, and has previously bought the fair trade lentils, for use in its catering outlets.

Short presentations will be followed by questions and answers. All welcome. For access to the Business School, enter via Buccleuch Place (Business School Café entrance) and take the stairs or lift to the Conference Room on the 4th floor.
