Fairtrade Fortnight is nearly here (25 February – 10 March), which is a great time to celebrate the positive impact Fairtrade has made on the lives of people all over the world that we support every day as colleagues.
We’ve an incredible history when it comes to Fairtrade: from selling the first Fairtrade products in Co-op stores, becoming the largest seller of Fairtrade wine, and most recently making sure all the cocoa, bananas, tea and coffee we sell or use as an ingredient are Fairtrade. There’s so much to celebrate this coming Fortnight.
How you can get involved
As a Co-op colleague, you can get involved by taking Fairtrade out into your community with a coffee morning, school talk, tasting event or even just a chat with friends using our Fairtrade celebration packs.
For Co-op and colleague members, we’ve 3,000 packs which include producer stories, recipes, bunting, coasters and stickers – they’re a great way to tell producer stories and taste delicious Fairtrade Co-op products.
