Fairtrade Fortnight 2023: Will you take part?
The countdown to Fairtrade Fortnight 2023 has begun, will you take part?
Fairtrade Fortnight starts Monday, 27 February and is organised and funded by the Fairtrade Foundation to increase awareness of Fairtrade products and workers’ rights, safer working conditions and fairer pay.
At Logic Vending we’re playing our part here in the UK and abroad with our partners at Kokebi Coffee who only work with Fairtrade Coffee Farms to produce our range of specialty and gourmet coffee blends and single origin coffees.
HOW DOES FAIRTRADE SUPPORT FARMERS IN THE CLIMATE CRISIS?
Fairtrade is about social, economic and environmental justice. These are built into the very foundations of Fairtrade product standards and drive everything we do. More money in the hands of farmers is needed if they are to adapt and survive the climate crisis, and choosing Fairtrade fights for improvements in producers’ livelihoods with collective strength through co-ops and their bargaining power, the protection of a Minimum Price and Fairtrade Premiums.
CHOOSE THE WORLD YOU WANT THIS FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT
We need to be louder and more discerning than ever with our product choices to ensure government and businesses turn to support Fairtrade if we are to secure the protection of workers’ rights and the climate crisis. This is why with Kokebi Coffee we have already made the switch to offer a wide range of Fairtrade coffees, including triple certified blends boasting Organic, Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade accreditation.
