We’ve been supporting Fairtrade for over 20 years and we’re the biggest convenience retailer of Fairtrade today. It’s something our members know and love us for, and something you voted for us to support at our AGM last year. Since then we’ve created even more Fairtrade lines, like our 100% Fairtrade roses.
As well as being award winning, our Fairtrade products do good too. For many of the world’s poorest communities, Fairtrade is the only guarantee of a fair price and freedom from exploitation.
Thanks to you buying Fairtrade we’ve built clean water facilities, schools, hospitals and a Women’s Leadership Academy in some of the world’s poorest countries. So what better way to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight this month, than with your own community?
Get your free Fairtrade resource pack
Fairtrade Fortnight runs from 27 February to 11 March, and we’re giving members Fairtrade resource packs to help them organise a community get together, including:
- Fairtrade fact booklet
- Fairtrade stickers, coaster and bunting
- Fairtrade quiz
- Fairtrade coffee morning guide
- A poster to help promote your event
- A £5 Co-op Food voucher to buy Co-op Fairtrade products (hurry – while stocks last! Also excludes alcohol).
Fairtrade’s even better value with double discount
For colleagues, buying Fairtrade is even better value. Our products are award winning, and as they’re Co-op branded, you get double discount (20%) on them every payday, and 10% discount all year round (our Fairtrade Chai tea bags topped a taste test in BBC Good Food last month). That’s on top of membership rewards that give you 5% back on Co-op brand products, and 1% for a local cause of your choice.
Our next colleague double discount is 16 and 17 Feb, so if you buy your tea party stuff early, you can buy even more.
