Fairtrade Fortnight, which celebrates the impact of Fairtrade by turning the spotlight on the producers who grow the products we love, kicks off next week and the team at Liberation HQ will be busy attending lots of exciting regional Fairtrade events and flying the flag for all things nutty!
In fact, last weekend we attended two Traidcraft roadshows in London and Wolverhampton which presented a great opportunity to talk directly to Fairtrade supporters and sample our delicious products.
On 25 February we are heading to Bedfordshire University in Luton to support their Fairtade celebrations which include numerous cookery demonstrations including one by our very own resident TV chef, Joe Hurd who will be making recipes using Brazil nuts. What’s more, we will also be using our time at the University to create the UK part of our Brazil Nut Story film (watch this space…)
Finally, Fairandfunky is organising a Fairtrade conference for schools in Kirklees, West Yorkshire bringing together 100 delegates from 10 Primary Schools to celebrate and learn about Fairtrade through creative arts and education workshops for students and teachers. This is the first conference in Kirklees to combine Fairtrade and the arts, offering professional development for teachers and innovative learning for students and Liberation is proud to be helping sponsor the event.
