£300m for Fairtrade

Daily Mail, Tuesday, May 28, 2019:

THE Co-op supermarket group has raised £300m to boost Fairtrade products.

It has issued ‘sustainability bonds’ to spend on marketing the Fairtrade brand and distribution.

The bonds, paying annual interest of 5.1pc, will raise money for ethical causes.

Future bonds could raise cash for its academies trust, which runs schools; efforts to reduce water poverty and environmentally-friendly technology.
