Fairtrade Fortnight 2019:  24 February - 8 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.

Join us in our annual moment when we bring the fight for change to the masses. We'll be continuing to focus on cocoa, the special role women farmers play in the journey to living incomes, and sharing new stories and tools to get more people choosing Fairtrade chocolate. We travelled back to Côte d'Ivoire, and Sierra Leone, to meet some truly inspiring women who want their stories to be heard by the UK. This Fortnight they need your help to share their stories and make the case for Fairtrade. And we’ve got some creative ways to do it…
