13 th Feb Fairtrade Fortnight
We support and encourage everyone in our team to make the most of their physical and mental well-being. As well as implementing initiatives to promote health and fitness, we never forget how important it is to find time to have fun whilst supporting worthwhile initiatives.
In just one year, we estimate that we drank 12,690 cups of tea! So during Fairtrade Fortnight, our team want to show their support for the farmers and workers who grow our food in developing countries and amplify the voices of the millions of farmers in developing countries who aren’t paid what they deserve.
Fairtrade Fortnight runs from Monday 27 February to Sunday 12 March 2017 and like us, we hope that you’ll come together for an office tea break and celebrate your Fairtrade products. You can even share important stories that can help change the way people think about trade and the products on our shelves like this one, from Olivia Mwombek, a Fairtrade coffee farmer in the Kagera Co-operative Union in Tanzania.
