Fairtrade Fortnight 2017

It’s time to put Fairtrade into your break

Global Justice Leicester joined with the Knighton Justice  Group to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight 2017. On February 25th we had a stall outside the Co Op on Evington Rd. It was a cold, windy day, but we were given a warm welcome by passers by. Farmers get a better deal when they sell crops for Fairtrade. We are extremely grateful to the Co Op and Marks and Spencers who gave us samples of Fairtrade Foods to share with people who came to our stall.

Fairtrade Fortnight is over for another year, but it is still important to buy Fairtrade produce and support the farmers who grow our food. Don’t forget to put Fairtrade into your break.

As Brexit moves ahead, we’re in an unprecedented situation.  The next few years will see our trade rules rewritten and new trade deals negotiated. For millions of farmers and workers from the world’s poorest countries who rely on trading with us, it could be make or break.

Please take action and support Fairtrade Farmers and their families:
