World Fair Trade Day

In the face of the global Coronavirus crisis, farmers and workers are playing a vital – but too often forgotten – role.

So this World Fair Trade Day, we’re celebrating their hard work. Join us in sending a big thank you to those keeping food on our plates.

Fairtrade farmers and workers are keeping shelves stocked around the world, but even more importantly they’re working to keep their own communities safe.

How fairtrade producers are helping – https://stories.fairtrade.org.uk/the-key-workers-beyond-our-borders/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=engagingnetworks&utm_campaign=++&utm_content=SC:WFTD+H+Ts

From preparing emergency food parcels to producing PPE, Fairtrade producers are helping some of the most vulnerable communities in the world get through this crisis.

Share their stories this World Fair Trade Day to thank them for their amazing efforts. Let’s make sure everyone appreciates these key workers beyond our borders.
