Fancy yourself as an ethical culinary master?

We're sponsoring the Freedom Food Compassionate Cook 2013 competition. It's a ‘how to’ recipe video contest for cooks who care about good, simple honest food, where it comes from and the people who help produce it.

The lucky winner will win a year’s worth of grocery shopping for a family of four, worth £4,000, courtesy of The Co-operative Food. Plus two runners up will receive £500 worth of shopping each from The Co-operative Food.

Great news Fairtrade nut-lovers! Liberation Nuts, the farmer-owned nut company is launching two delicious new Fairtrade products this week.

All the nuts are sourced from Fairtrade co-operatives of small-scale growers and farmers in Nicaragua, Malawi and India, who own a 44% share of Liberation. Available in selected Waitrose stores now!

Good news for our campaign to Make Food Fair!

Remember after Fairtrade Fortnight when we handed your petition signatures in support of smallholder farmers in at Downing Street? Well Secretary of State at the Department for International Development, Justine Greening, has written to us confirming a high level commitment to placing smallholders at the heart of Government policy.

A huge thank you to all who signed the petition! More on the story here http://www.fairtrade.org.uk/get_involved/campaigns/make_food_fair/campaign_news.aspx

Swimming the English Channel probably isn't everyone’s idea of an enjoyable fundraising activity...

But that's exactly what our Director of Product Integrity, David Meller, just did to raise money for the Fairtrade Innovation Fund!

Story
Tagline
The Fairtrade Foundation is the UK-based organisation behind the FAIRTRADE Mark. We are working for a better deal for farmers, their families and communities in the developing world.
Introduction

We are the organisation based in the UK that licenses use of the FAIRTRADE Mark on products that meet internationally agreed standards.

We work with businesses, community groups and individuals to improve the trading position of producer organisations in developing countries and to deliver sustainable livelihoods for farmers, workers and their communities.

We want a world in which justice & sustainable development are at the heart of trade structures and practices so that everyone, through their work, can maintain a decent and dignified livelihood and develop their full potential. To achieve this vision, Fairtrade seeks to transform trading structures and practices in favour of the poor and disadvantaged.

It's not all bananas and coffee you know. From oven gloves to ice lollies, check out the range of Fairtrade products at http://www.fairtrade.org.uk/products
