We’re Having a Fairer Fortnight

Submitted by on March 1, 2011 – 4:23 pmNo Comment

Fairtrade Fortnight is upon us, and here at Suma we are keen to play our part in highlighting the importance of Fairtrade for farmers, producers and communities around the world. Not to mention the fact that there are so many great activities and events happening over the next couple of weeks, it’s going to be a lot of fun too!

Keep an eye out on this website for some great recipes to help you make the most of all the fantastic Fairtrade ingredients we have on offer.

Also we’ll have updates featured on our Facebook page. We’ll be taking part in the Fairtrade Foundation’s all-new ‘Show Off Your Label’ game, so it will be worth a look for the comedy photos if nothing else! You can share pictures and stories about your own Fortnight activities on our Facebook page too- we’d love to hear about them.

How will you be celebrating?
