Note to Editors – this year, Fair Trade Fortnight will take place from May 7-22.
Fair Trade Fortnight celebrates and promotes fair trade: paying a fair price to producers in developing countries and helping to lift them and their communities out of poverty.
It also encourages individuals and organisations to “make the swap” to fair trade products, as a tangible way of helping to make the world a fairer place.
Media/story opportunities include:
• Interviews with individuals and businesses who have made the swap to fair trade
• Product images and information about fair trade products your readers/audience can buy to make a difference to producers in developing countries
For more information, including product images, please contact:
