Fairtrade Fortnight 2015
Wednesday, February 25, 2015 |
It’s Fairtrade Fortnight meaning we have an opportunity to celebrate the benefits that come from more than 90% of our coffee being Fairtrade certified.
Through our buying, in 2014 we funded £460,000 of capacity building and social projects through Fairtrade social premiums. This money was paid directly to our partner farming communities around the world for projects which will improve their quality of life for instance by helping to develop their businesses or giving them better access to healthcare, sanitation or education for their children.
We’re proud to support Fairtrade because it means a better deal for farmers and a tastier coffee for our customers.
