Fairtrade Fortnight (29 Feb – 13 Mar)

Did you know…Fairtrade Fortnight this year runs from 29 February – 13 March? CAFOD is co-founder of the Fairtrade Foundation. As Martin Luther King famously said, ‘before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world’. Fairtrade is a simple way to make a difference by thinking carefully about our everyday choices. It’s about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for small-scale farmers. We are all part of the global food system – which means we have the power to change it. Choosing Fairtrade products is one of the ways we can help tackle poverty.
