Fairtrade Fortnight 2016 - 29 February - 13 March 2016

During Fairtrade Fortnight, we're offering buy one, get one free across a wide range of Fairtrade products from our shops, coffee outlets and restaurants.

Your support will help us to support Fairtrade producers.

The Business School will also welcome Sheena Biju, Fairtrade coffee and spice producer, and manager of a coffee co-operative in Kerala, India.

Fairtrade Fortnight is this year inspiring people to sit down and have a Fairtrade breakfast together. This is to support the farmers who grow the food and drinks we have every morning, such as coffee, tea, cocoa and bananas.
