Fairtrade Fortnight 2019:  25 February - 10 March

As Martin Luther King famously said, ‘before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world’.

The food on our tables, the tea and coffee in our mugs, all from farmers who toil, sweat and slog.

However hard they work to provide the things we depend on, millions of farmers in developing countries aren’t paid what they deserve. It’s not a new problem.

We need to amplify the voices of marginalised producers as much as ever in 2019.

When we come together we can change the way people think about trade and the products on our shelves - the Fairtrade movement is made up of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in their communities for Fairtrade. Your actions help shoppers to make choices that change the lives of farmers and workers.

Join thousands of others across the UK this Fairtrade Fortnight to help our friends, neighbours, colleagues and communities to put Fairtrade in their break and take exploitation out.
