Fairtrade Fortnight – 27 February to 12 March 2023 –

Choosing Fairtrade now can help save the future of our favourite foods. During Fairtrade Fortnight, hundreds of individuals, companies and groups across Ireland come together to share the stories of the people who grow our food and drinks, mine our gold and who grow the cotton in our clothes, people who are often exploited and underpaid.

This Fairtrade Fortnight, join them in spreading a simple message: making the small switch to Fairtrade supports producers in protecting the future of some of our most-loved food and the planet.

Coffee, bananas and chocolate could soon be much more difficult to buy.

Climate change is making crops like these harder and harder to grow. Combined with deeply unfair trade, communities growing these crops are being pushed to the brink. 

But here’s the good news.  

More people choosing Fairtrade means extra income, power and support for those communities.

By making the small switch to Fairtrade, we can all support producers in protecting the future of some of our most-loved food and the planet. 

On Tuesday 28 February, Fairtrade launches The Endangered Aisle, an exciting pop-up experience at 32 Shoreditch High Street, London, E1 6PG.

Find the location on Google Maps.

The Endangered Aisle will be open to the public:

  • Tuesday 28 February, 9am–4pm
  • Wednesday 1 March, 9am-4pm
  • Thursday 2 March, 9am-1pm

The Endangered Aisle will shine a light on the supermarket staples most at risk of becoming endangered from the climate crisis, including coffee, bananas and chocolate.

Fairtrade will also release new research highlighting how climate change is endangering the future of many favourite foods grown by farmers overseas.
