Whats Hot ... Fairtrade

Put simply, Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world who grow our food and drink. An amazing 93% of UK shoppers recognise the FAIRTRADE Mark and 83% trust it when deciding whether a product is ethical, but there is still a long way to go. Which is why campaigns such as Fairtrade Fortnight are so important.

This year’s campaign, which runs from Monday 24th February to Sunday 8th March, continues the focus on cocoa farmers in West Africa and the special role women farmers play in the journey to living incomes. The Fairtrade Foundation has travelled to Côte d’Ivoire, and Sierra Leone to meet some truly inspiring women and they need our help to share their stories and make the case for Fairtrade.
