Meet the Farmers
Find out more about Fairtrade Farmers
Fair Trade Fortnight (8th – 22nd May 2015) is an annual, nationwide celebration of all things fair trade & the difference that choosing fair makes for millions of farmers & workers in developing countries.
This year we are running The Great Kiwi Fairness Debate.
As a nation, we like to think we give people a fair go. But are we really as fair as we think we are?
The campaign aims to answer that question, while educating Kiwis on the positive impacts of choosing fair when they shop.
When people make a conscious effort to buy Fairtrade products, like coffee, they can be assured that the producers have received a fair, stable and sustainable price for their goods, and their businesses meet the economic, social and environmental Fairtrade standards of sustainability.
Whether you are new to Fairtrade or are looking to get more involved, there are exciting and creative ways to inform your friends, family and community about Fairtrade and trade justice.
With every cup of Fairtrade coffee drunk, we are helping to make a difference to farmers and workers, their families and communities. With your involvement that number can grow.
Find out how you can get involved with Fairtrade at school, work, university or in your local community. Whether you are a heartened individual or part of a group, every voice and every action counts. Start your journey into Fairtrade and trade justice here!
