It's Fairtrade Fortnight! From 26 February to 11 March join us in supporting the farmers and workers who grow our food. With Fairtrade we have the power to change the world every day. Fairtrade opens doors. Come on in.

It's a shocking fact that millions of farmers and workers who produce the food we love still don’t earn enough to feed their own families. It’s time for this injustice to end. Fairtrade Fortnight puts a spotlight on trade. When trade is fair it has the potential to improve the lives of the people who grow our food. 

Here's what you can do get get involved. If you are a business or a campaigner, you will also find helpful information on the links at the bottom of this page.

Throughout Fairtrade Fortnight we're introducing you to the people behind our food. The Fairtrade farmers and workers who show the impact Fairtrade can have on them and their communities. Follow us on social media and like, comment and share our posts to support the Fairtrade mission.
