Delighted to attend the All-Party Parliamentary group for Fairtrade meeting yesterday and hear about all the exciting products and campaigns Fairtrade has been launching over the past year.
There are now over 1.66 million Fairtrade farmers and producers in 75 different countries. It’s through buying Fairtrade products, such as bananas, tea and coffee, that we help to improve the income, living standards, food security and wellbeing of farmers and plantation workers all over the world.
I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Fairtrade through the APPG and I’m excited to hear about the new innovative products and campaigns they’re planning to launch in the coming months and years. Notably, their plans to explore the implications of Brexit for less developed countries, as well as their focus on contributing to the achievement of living wages and living income.
