Fairtrade Fortnight 2019

In this section

Fairtrade Fortnight aims to put a spotlight on trade around the world.

Many farmers – both men and women – are underpaid and exploited. That means they can’t earn enough for the basic human rights that many of us take for granted, including food, education and housing.

For the women who work in the fields and in the home, it’s even worse. They may plant and harvest, look after children, carry water and transport the cocoa beans to market. But despite all that hard work, they are likely to see even less of the money for their crop. They deserve more.

To find out more about Fairtrade and how you can support the cause go to the Fairtrade Foundation


Sign-up to our Co-op Cuppa scheme and we could supply you with Fairtrade tea. Since launching in July 2015, we've supplied over one million Fairtrade tea bags to over 1000 local good causes - meaning every cup not only supports positive action in our local communities, but also supports tea-growers across Kenya and Malawi.
