The Tree is a non-profit student cooperative dedicated to bringing local, organic, and fairtrade staples to the whole St Andrews community at affordable prices.
Localising our food in where we shop and what we consume is a great way to support local business but also reduce the carbon footprint of our meals. As a food hub, The Tree connects local producers and local consumers up so that our community can make more low carbon lifestyle choices.
We are even branching out what we sell. On top of the food, we now offer cleaning and hygiene products.
As much as possible The Tree is trying to move towards being plastic free.

The veg is so amazing that our lovely team takes extra care for them so when they reach you the food tastes like a smile from ear to ear.
