Fairtrade Fortnight is an action-packed highlight of the year, when campaigners, businesses, schools and places of worship show their support for the farmers and workers who grow our food in developing countries.
One banana farmer stated, ‘For hundreds of years, we were taught to serve, to be workers. Now with Fairtrade, we are entrepreneurs’.
Millions of farmers and workers are still being ripped off despite working hard to provide the products we love. Unfairness in global trade is rooted in centuries of exploitation. Yet across the globe, hard-working producers are unravelling this legacy. They’re fighting for a fair deal, supported by Fairtrade, earning their way out of poverty and transforming their communities.
Together we’re stronger, and more people choosing, sharing and shouting about Fairtrade means more power to producers.
It’s up to you! From breakfasts to banquets and bake-offs during Fairtrade Fortnight we can use our creativity, connections and local knowledge (not to mention effort!) to open more doors to Fairtrade.
Fairtrade would love to know what you have planned so please email them – another way that we can promote our Soroptimist work!
Resources and event packs are available to order from the Foundation’s online shop. There are many ways that we can support Fairtrade in our everyday lives. When we reach for our favourite food and drink each day without thinking about where it comes from, we may be feeding exploitation. We become part of the problem. However, we can choose to be part of the solution.
Finally, in terms of advocacy, for those of us in the UK, we can lobby two ways by contacting the following groups:
