Countdown host and former advisor to Alan Sugar on the Apprentice, Nick Hewer has been announced as a new patron of the Fairtrade Foundation.
New sourcing, programmes and expertise to tackle systemic issues in product supply chains.
Commenting on BBC1’s Fashion’s Dirty Secret: Stacey Dooley Investigates, aired 8th October 2018, a spokesperson for the Fairtrade Foundation said:
Delegates at a high-profile conference on sustainability called on the world’s top fashion brands and retailers to include sustainably sourced cotton into their fibre strategy. Extreme poverty that lies at the heart of so many of the fashion industry’s social issues can only be tackled if brands commit to souring the fibre responsibly and at scale.

Ever wondered how many farmers and workers are involved with Fairtrade? Or how the Fairtrade Premium is used? Here's a snapshot from our latest data.
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.
With Fairtrade you have the power to change the world every day. With simple shopping choices you can get farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their future and lead the dignified life everyone deserves.
