Fairtrade for Business

Event Description

The Workshop

This event is for organisations in the West of England who are keen to learn more about how Fairtrade can help their business and share Fairtrade ideas. It will provide help and inspiration to source more Fairtrade products in your workplace.

There to answer your questions will be winners from the 2017 South West Fairtrade Business Awards both presenting and on hand to share their Fairtrade experiences.  

 We will also be introducing the revised entry criteria for the South West Fairtrade Business Awards as well as revealing a brand new category for 2018.  Our team will be on hand to talk you through the free awards process and help answer your queries about applying.


 Context

 In a time of uncertainty for the future of international trade, Fairtrade will continue to provide certainty for producers and suppliers, particularly the smaller ones who often are marginalised from the global trading debate.

 Whilst buying Fairtrade products for your business supports those producers and helps make their future more secure, it can also help your business – no matter what size. Using Fairtrade products can form part of your CSR policy and activities, boost your profile in your community and encourage staff to get involved in sustainable activities and practices.

The event is free, but booking is essential.  Please book your place at:
