Fairtrade fortnight

Fairtrade Fortnight has begun !

It has been reported that sales of Fairtrade products reached £1.32 billion in 2011, which was a 12% increase on 2010. Co-op Party members across Kent are campaigning to get the Fairtrade message across and are encouraging people to take a ‘step’ for Fairtrade.

Four out of ten bags of sugar, a third of all bananas and one in four packs of roast and ground coffee sold in this country are Fairtrade.

The theme for this year’s fortnight is Take A Step, encouraging shoppers to try one new product. Find out more at http://step.fairtrade.org.uk/
