Across the country, from contract caterers to independent cafes, your support for Fairtrade not only meets the demands of consumers, but most importantly means farmers and workers can put enough food on the table for the people they care about, all year round.
It’s a chance to show your customers that when they buy your Fairtrade products, the farmers and workers behind them have been paid a better price, giving them more control over their lives.
Here are a few ways to get more involved with Fairtrade:
1. Take part in our upcoming Fairtrade Fortnight Campaign
The clock is ticking and we’re on the countdown to Fairtrade Fortnight. During this campaign we’re recognising that the food on our tables, the tea and coffee in our cups are from farmers who toil, sweat and slog.
However hard they work to provide the things we depend on, millions of farmers in developing countries aren’t paid what they deserve. It’s not a new problem.
We need to amplify the voices of marginalised producers as much as ever in 2017.

2. Order our new point-of-sale materials
The Fairtrade Foundation have produced FREE brand new coffee resources to help you convey your Fairtrade sourcing commitments. ‘Taste the good in your coffee’ highlights both the social and environmental ‘good’ of Fairtrade, via the minimum price and Premium, but also the good quality and taste, resulting from farmers investing at least 25% of their Fairtrade Premium in quality and productivity programmes.
Please take a look at the resources below. If you would like to place an order, email us with the number of each item required, your Fairtrade brand of coffee used and a postal address. There is currently no limit to the quantity of resources you can order.
Share your Fairtrade commitment through social media channels, using the brand new resources for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
If you would like to request these, please email us with the Fairtrade coffee brand you are using.
