FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT 25 February – 10 March 2019

Fairtrade say:

Calling all chocolate fans! Join the Fairtrade campaign to ensure that cocoa farmers are paid fairly for their work and are able to live a dignified life. It’s easy to join in.

For two weeks each year, thousands of individuals, companies and groups across the UK come together to celebrate the people who grow our food, people who live in some of the poorest countries in the world and who are often exploited and badly paid. This year we are focusing on the people – in particular the women – who grow the cocoa in the chocolate we love so much.
