Fairtrade Fortnight this year will be celebrated from Feb 21st - March 7th.
The FAIRTRADE Mark was introduced in 1992 and is recognised around the world. Over 1.6 million farmers and workers around the world now operate within fairtrade agreements. The vision is one of fairness, so that all workers receive a fair and secure wage within a framework of social, economic and environmental standards. Amazingly, 93 per cent of UK shoppers recognise it, and 83 per cent trust it when deciding whether a product is ethical.
