Come on in to Fairtrade Fortnight 2019

Fairtrade Fortnight 2019 - Coming 25th February to 10th March 2019

Fairtrade Fortnight was a great success this year so we are already looking forward to Fairtrade Fortnight 2019!

Ethical Superstore have been big supporters of Fairtrade since we launched back in 2006 when we became the first online store where you could buy a full range of Fairtrade products, we now sell over 1000 fair trade products!

In 2018 the focus was on supporting the farmers and workers who grow our food. Fairtrade has the potential to improve the lives of these farmers and workers, however it is a shocking fact that many millions of poor farmers don’t earn enough to feed their own families. In a rich developed country like the UK, as consumers we can’t accept the price for the food we pay does not provide enough for the people working hard to produce it. With Fairtrade we can bring this injustice to an end by ensuring the products we buy are passing on a fair portion to the farmers and workers.  

We have a great range of Fairtrade products from your favourite brands like Divine Chocolate, Cafedirect, Traidcraft, Ubuntu and Green & Blacks. We also love to introduce you to new Fairtrade brands and products which you can’t get in the supermarket such as Karma Cola, Lemonaid, Liberation, Ethletic and Ma’s Happy Life Kitchen. We also have some amazing Fairtrade offers coming for Fairtrade Fortnight 2019.

Since 1997 Fairtrade Fortnight has been increasing awareness of the Fairtrade movement and Fairtrade products. The first Fairtrade Fortnight took place in Scotland directed by Barnaby Miln and campaigned to get every supermarket in Scotland to stock Fairtrade products. Fairtrade Fortnight spread to the rest of the UK in 1998 and now is celebrated in serval countries such as Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand. Events such as fates, fairs, Fairtrade food tastings, fashion shows and community, school and church events usually supported buy local authorities and governments.

Let's make this Fairtrade Forthnight  2019 even better than ever! Fairtrade Fortnight will be back in 2019 from 25th February to 10th March.
