This week, Fairtrade Fortnight 2023 commenced! These two weeks happen each year in order to spread the word of making the switch to Fairtrade to support producers in protecting the future of our planet and some of our most loved foods! This is the perfect time to try and make the simple switch and buy Fairtrade labelled products to help make a change!💚
What does Fairtrade mean? 🤔
Fairtrade is a trading partnership that contributes to sustainable development by giving better trading conditions to producers and workers. Fairtrade also secures the rights of these marginalised workers. Fairtrade is all about giving the people who produce the products you buy and love a fair price for the work they do.
Did you know that coffee☕, chocolate🍫 and bananas🍌 will soon be much more difficult to buy because of climate change and the truly unjust and unfair trading conditions for the producers in these sectors are making these crops harder to grow. Making the switch to Fairtrade means extra income, power and support for these producers and less rarity for us.
