What is Fairtrade fortnight?
Fairtrade fortnight is an annual celebration of all things Fairtrade. It’s an opportunity to raise awareness of Fairtrade and the reasons why you should consider shopping Fairtrade.
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers.
It’s about supporting the development of thriving farming and worker communities that have more control over their futures and protecting the environment in which they live and work.
