More than 2,000 products in the UK from 58 developing countries now carry the Fairtrade Mark. Because these items have become so widely available from catering suppliers, wholesalers, online and all major supermarkets, it is simple for any workplace to join the thousands of others who have already made the change. By switching to Fairtrade certified tea, coffee and other products, businesses can help make a difference to the lives of farmers and workers in some of the world’s poorest countries. Products include tea, coffee, juices, biscuits, cakes and wine. Companies can also source Fairtrade certified cotton for their t-shirts and uniforms or brighten up office receptions with Fairtrade flowers.
To promote Fairtrade certified products at your workplace or provide a quick introduction to Fairtrade to your colleagues, you can order free resources that help explain the benefits of Fairtrade at Work.
