It’s Fairtrade Fortnight 2020!
Fair Ted is calling all chocolate fans and fighters for fairness!
In 2020 we will continue our mission to ensure that all farmers are paid fairly for their work and are able to earn a living income, starting with cocoa farmers in West Africa.
Join us during Fairtrade Fortnight 24 Feb- 8 Mar at various special events.
Last year’s campaign ‘She Deserves a Living Income’ highlighted the bitter taste of exploitation that lies behind the sweet delight of chocolate.
In 2020 we need these women’s stories to go even further. We need more people to understand the power they have as consumers and to choose Fairtrade. We want to show companies that people in the UK expect them to go much further to pay living income prices to farmers – and Fairtrade is the most trusted way to show it.
We will be sharing new stories of truly inspiring women in Côte d’Ivoire and Sierra Leone who want their stories to be heard by the UK. People like Lucia who lives in Sierra Leone side by side with some of our planet’s rarest wildlife. Selling her cocoa as Fairtrade means Lucia can better provide for her family and protect her forest home.
When we choose Fairtrade are we doing the right thing by people and planet.
Let’s spread the word this Fairtrade Fortnight
