Reflecting on a fair future.
More than 300 business leaders, political figures, campaigners, NGOs and producers came together on 15 October 2014 for Fair Future, an event to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the FAIRTRADE Mark in the UK. Broadcaster and Observer ethical journalist Lucy Siegle described the day, held at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in Westminster, as ‘an opportunity to kick the tyres of a movement’ that has achieved much – but as Harriet Lamb, CEO of Fairtrade International commented, ‘still stands in the foothills of a mountain of injustice’.
