Taking a Fairtrade Break on Preston Station, Fri 3 March

Submitted by anne on Fri, 03/17/2017 - 14:57

We spent the day talking to travellers and staff at Preston station and encouraging them to 'put Fairtrade in their breaks' by offering lots of goodies donated by 100% Fairtrade companies, in particular Traidcraft (Geobars), Divine (dark chocolate), Liberation nuts (salted peanuts), and Cafedirect (tea & coffee samples). Mark Hendrick, MP for Preston, joined us in the morning and we discussed the position of small-scale farmers in the developing world as we leave the EU and negotiate new trade deals.
