What is happening during Fairtrade Fortnight 2017?

It's Time to Put Fairtrade in Your Break; Don't Feed Exploitation

The food on our tables, the tea and coffee in our mugs are all from farmers who toil, sweat and slog.
Yet these farmers are trapped in a system that is unfair, one that rips them off. However hard they work to provide the things we depend on, they still aren't paid what they deserve. And every time people buy these products, they become part of the problem.
Together we can end this - by campaigning to encourage others to choose Fairtrade. It’s time to get as many people in your community to take a Fairtrade break. Don’t feed exploitation. Choose Fairtrade.
