Fairtrade Fortnight is about people coming together to support farmers and workers around the world. It’s your chance to stand up for what you believe in - whether that’s protecting the environment, gender equality, or ensuring farmers and workers are paid fairly. It used to be that you had to strike, chant, march or chain yourself to a tree to stand up for what you believe in. Now you can simply do it with your purchase!
Fairtrade stands for improving livelihoods and supporting the development of thriving communities through trade. The result is real, positive change in people’s lives - from the farmers and workers growing crops and producing raw materials, through the supply chain, and into your hands. By choosing products with the Fairtrade Mark, you’re making a difference to the lives of the farmers and workers. Every time you buy a Fairtrade certified product, you know that that the Fairtrade ingredients in it meet internationally agreed Fairtrade social, economic and environmental standards - look out for the Fairtrade Mark and make your purchase count! Here’s our Top Ten reasons to #choosefairtrade!
