What is Fairtrade Fortnight?
For two weeks each year, thousands of individuals, companies and groups across the UK come together to celebrate the people who grow our food, people who live in some of the poorest countries in the world and who are often exploited and badly paid. This year Fairtrade Fortnight is focusing on the people – in particular the women – who grow the cocoa in the chocolate we love so much. The theme is ‘She deserves a living income’. You can find more information and resources for Fairtrade Fortnight 2019 on the Fairtrade Foundation’s website.
The following Fairtrade Fortnight events will take place in Aberdeen, at the University of Aberdeen and across Aberdeenshire:
