The Fairtrade Foundation says “It’s a quarter of a century since we launched the FAIRTRADE Mark in the UK. Powered by people and community action, it’s grown from an idea about justice and fairness among a few like-minded groups, into a household name. It has completely changed how we think about the people who produce the food, drink and clothing we enjoy every day. “
The following regional conferences are being run in the UK to recognise this landmark:
- Exeter – Saturday 21 September 2019: 10:30am – 3:30pm, Exeter Community Centre.
- Middlesbrough – Saturday 21 September – 10:30am – 3:30pm – Teeside University Students’ Union.
- Nottingham – Saturday 26 October – 10:30am – 3:30pm – Albert Hall Conference Centre.
