Fairtrade Fortnight campaign in Parliament

Fairtrade Fortnight 2022 is currently underway, running from 21st February – 6th March. During this time, the Fairtrade Foundation is running a campaign to highlight the growing challenges that climate change brings to farmers and agricultural workers overseas, who grow popular products such as tea, coffee, cocoa and bananas.

Rt Hon Sir David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford and Vice Chairman of the Conservative Party, was among 55 MPs that attended a drop-in session in Parliament yesterday (1 March) to learn more about the campaign.

At the event, MPs participated in a photocall, sampled Fairtrade products, were offered Fairtrade facemasks created by sustainable clothing company Neutral and to learn more about the Fairtrade Foundation’s work and campaigns.
