Joanna’s interview for the Fair World Project podcast – about the Nestle campaign

Last month Joanna was interviewed by the Fair World Project in the US for their podcast series. Her episode – number 5 in the series – is out now.

She talks us through the 2020 campaign to Keep KitKat Fairtrade and the links between the Nestle factory in York, its Quaker roots and  challenges in the cocoa industry right now.

And in the first few minutes you can hear her explaining all about Fairtrade Yorkshire to her interviewer Anna Canning who was calling from Portland, Oregon.

Have your say!

The National Campaigner Committee was the driver behind our successful Fairtrade Connections festival during Fairtrade Fortnight. Fairtrade Yorkshire worked closely with NCC representatives from the South West, North West and London to put on, promote and organise the events. We think the NCC could be a great resource to support campaigners in Yorkshire and around the UK.

They are the representatives of the grassroots Fairtrade campaigner base and want to know how you would like them to work with and for you. Please take our short survey to let us know what matters to you in campaigning for a fairer future.
