    Fairtrade Fortnight 2018

    Each year for two weeks over February and March, Fairtrade puts a spotlight on trade through our Fairtrade Fortnight campaign. Together with the Fairtrade farmers and workers, and campaigners up and down the country, we highlight the difference fair trade can make to lives and communities.

    Brexit - time to make trade fair

    As Brexit moves ahead, we’re in an unprecedented situation.  The next few years will see our trade rules rewritten and new trade deals negotiated. It’s likely to mean big changes for us. But for millions of farmers and workers from the world’s poorest countries who rely on trading with us, it could be make or break.

    Discover Fairtrade Gold

    An estimated 16 million small scale miners work in dangerous conditions around the world to provide gold that may end up on our high streets. Exploited by some middle men, and forced to handle hazardous chemicals such as mercury, small scale mining is a harsh and precarious way to earn a livelihood that often leaves miners living in poverty.

    You have the power to do something about this – by buying, and promoting, Fairtrade Gold.
