About Fairtrade: The international Fairtrade system exists to end poverty through trade. The Fairtrade Foundation is an independent certification body and NGO which licenses the use of the FAIRTRADE Mark on more than 5,000 products which meet its rigorous social, economic and environmental standards. This independent label signifies to consumers that farmers and workers across 73 developing countries are getting a better deal from trade.
Today, more than 1.6 million people who work hard to produce coffee, tea, cocoa, bananas, wines, flowers, cotton,
gold and many other products benefit from Fairtrade, which campaigns for as well as enables a fairer system of global trade. Beyond certification, the Fairtrade Foundation is deepening its impact by delivering specialist programmes to help disadvantaged communities boost productivity in the face of challenges such as climate change.
This Special Fairtrade Fortnight Menu is available at HIDEAWAY Patisserie & Brasserie.
Many thanks to Stephen and his team for arranging this.
