Fairtrade Fortnight 2023 is taking place 27 February – 12 March 2023.
This Fairtrade Fortnight, join us in spreading a simple message: making the small switch to Fairtrade supports producers in protecting the future of some of our most-loved food and the planet.
Did you know?
Did you know cocoa, bananas and coffee could soon be much more difficult to find on our shelves?
Climate change is making crops like these harder and harder to grow. Combined with deeply unfair trade, communities growing these crops are being pushed to the brink.
But here’s the good news.
More of us choosing Fairtrade means extra income, power, and support for those communities.
By making the small switch to Fairtrade, we can all support producers in protecting the future of some of our most-loved food and the planet.
ways to get involved in Fairtrade Fortnight 2023
1. JOIN OUR BIG FAIRTRADE GET TOGETHERS
This year we are running free online Big Fairtrade Get Togethers.
Sign up to these exciting live events to hear from Fairtrade farmers and other experts on how we can have a sustainable future for our favourite foods. These free events will run throughout Fairtrade Fortnight and are open to everyone.
If you’re organising a local event, you could tune in to these Big Fairtrade Get Togethers as a group. There will be chances to ask questions of our expert panel too.
We will not be able to provide speakers for events this Fairtrade Fortnight. We encourage any groups wishing to hear directly from the team to join the Big Fairtrade Get Togethers.
2. SPREAD THE WORD
We need action taking place in every part of the country to spread the word about the power of Fairtrade.
Whether it’s a coffee morning, a quiz night, social media post or something completely different, we look forward to hearing more about what’s going on in your area. Visit our Resource Library for more tools and ideas on how to spread the word.
