|The co-op have always been passionate supporters of Fairtrade, and this upcoming Fairtrade Fortnight is no exception. They have events taking place in stores across the City, and 20% discounts on many Fairtrade products in their stores over the fortnight.
From in-store tastings to fashion shows, theatre preformances from local school children, question time with guest speakers Jennipher Wettaka and Justine Watalunga fair trade coffee farmers from the Nasufwa Growers’ co-operative society, who are affiliated with the Gumutindo co-operative in Uganda. We will be asking you to re-think not only the food and drink you buy, but also the clothes you wear as we celebrate Fairtrade fortnight 2012.
