Fairtrade Fortnight is Here

It’s the biggest two weeks of the Fairtrade year. From banana smiles to all the latest from producers, this fortnight encourages everyone to show off about buying Fairtrade.

Figures show that last year shoppers broke the £1 billion mark on Fairtrade sales, bucking the economic trend and offering producers in the developing world breathing space to make it through these tough times.

For more from the producers themselves, visit the Fairtrade website where there will be blogs from Fairtrade producers visiting the UK this Fairtrade Fortnight. They’re touring the country to spread the word about Fairtrade and experience for themselves the amazing passion the UK has for trade justice.

Finally, make sure you break out a banana smile today and post it on the Fairtrade Facebook challenge. Thanks to Sainsbury’s; you could win a trip to the Dominican Republic to meet banana farmers.
