World Fair Trade Day

This year World Fair Trade Day is on Saturday 11th May.Fairtrade Yorkshire

World Fair Trade Day is an international celebration for the global Fair Trade movement.  Do look out for events being held in your local area.

Make sure that you sign the Make Food Fair petition which will be handed to the Prime Minister just before World Fair Trade Day. Despite producing 70% of the world’s food, over half of the world’s hungriest people are smallholder farmers. The petition calls on David Cameron to go further and champion a better deal for smallholder farmers at this year’s G8 meeting.

Sign the petition now.
