Fairtrade Fortnight 2016


'Sit down for breakfast, stand up for farmers' is the message the Fairtrade Foundation is sending out ahead of this year's Fairtrade Fortnight.

As Martin Luther King famously said: "Before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you've depended on more than half the world". Despite our dependence on farmers and workers for the foods, drinks, and products that we love, about 795 million people are undernourished globally.

The Fairtrade Foundation campaigners will be encouraging as many people as possible in their community to eat an ethical breakfast during Fairtrade Fortnight - and wake others up to the challenges facing farmers and workers.

Shared Interest will be supporting the campaign by holding our very own Fairtrade breakfast, encouraging staff to bake their own Fairtrade treats to enjoy with colleagues. Our ambassadors will also be getting involved, attending events across the UK.
