"In Fairtrade Fortnight 2021, we will highlight the growing challenges that climate change brings to farmers and workers in the communities Fairtrade works with."
22 February - 7 March, 2021
For those of you who don’t know, Fairtrade is a global movement, which works to secure a better deal for farmers and workers throughout the poorer parts of the world.
Supporting Fairtrade is a simple way to make a difference to the lives of the people who grow and make the things we love.
Fairtrade’s mission is to connect disadvantaged farmers and workers with consumers, promote fairer trading conditions and empower farmers and workers to combat poverty, strengthen their position and take more control over their lives.
