Queen’s AMS call for end to relationship with Coke Canada Bottling

October 8, 2021
Students from Queen’s University’s Alma Mater Society have called on the university to open up opportunities for more local and sustainable products by ending an exclusivity agreement with Coke Canada Bottling. “We’re really home to like a lot of great local vendors who produce on a small scale and sustainably,” says AMS Environmental Sustainability Commissioner Jessica Wile. “Especially if you’ve been to the Memorial Centre farmers market, I always see some great vendors there, as well as some more local general stores.” Queen’s states that it has formed a stakeholder group to review the future of exclusivity contracts, and Wile says that Queen’s administration has been supportive in giving her a seat at the table for further discussions.
