Fairtrade Fortnight

13 February 2017

Fairtrade Fortnight 2017: Monday 27 February - Sunday 12 March

From Fairtrade:

'The food on our tables, the tea and coffee in our mugs, all from farmers who toil, sweat and slog.  However hard they work to provide the things we depend on, millions of farmers in developing countries aren’t paid what they deserve. It’s not a new problem.

We need to amplify the voices of marginalised producers as much as ever in 2017.

When we come together we can change the way people think about trade and the products on our shelves - the Fairtrade movement is made up of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in their communities for Fairtrade. Your actions help shoppers to make choices that change the lives of farmers and workers.

Join thousands of others across the UK this Fairtrade Fortnight to help our friends, neighbours, colleagues and communities to put Fairtrade in their break and take exploitation out.
