Fairtrade fortnight takes place between 1 - 14 March. This is the tenth anniversary of the Fairtrade mark.

"Fairtrade, backed by a vibrant social movement of people throughout the country, is now bedding into the mainstream, giving thousands of producers in developing countries the chance to build a better future and to compete in the all too cut-throat global markets." says Harriet Lamb, Executive Director of the Fairtrade Foundation. "The rapidly rising sales prove that consumers do care and are prepared to pay the true price for products they know they can trust, guaranteed by the Fairtrade Mark ".

We are currently spending £100 million per year on over 250 different Fairtrade products. Big sellers are coffee, chocolate and bananas. There are events and tastings taking place throughout the country and in many supermarkets - see website for more information.

Tesco has launched a new range of 15 ownbrand Fairtrade products to coincoude with the fortnight.
