Are you a local retailer or cafe stocking two or more Fairtrade products? If so, then…
Oxford Fairtrade Coalition Invites you to a “Fairtrade is Good Business” Lunch
1.00 – 2.30 pm, Tuesday 6th March, at the Oxford Hub/Turl Street Kitchen, Oxford
If you stock Fairtrade products you already make a difference to the lives of producers across the world, lifting families out of poverty and supporting investment in communities, but did you know that there are over 4,000 products that bear the Fairtrade label? This event is designed to help you find more about this range of products and to learn more about how Fairtrade not only benefits producers but how it can also benefit your business.
The event will include a short presentation from Fairtrade expert David Philips, followed by a delicious Fairtrade lunch with Fairtrade Wine. Over lunch we will have a number of Fairtrade Business Mentors on hand to talk to you about opportunities to increase your Fairtrade product range, as well as information on the wide range of products, from foodstuffs to fabrics and flowers that now carry the Fairtrade Mark.
The event is being organised as part of Fairtrade Fortnight which runs from February 27th – March 11th 2012, and is one of a range of activities taking place throughout the city. This year, the Fairtrade Foundation is inviting us to take an extra step in Fairtrade. For example, you might consider stocking even more Fairtrade products – visit the Fairtrade Foundation website at http://www.fairtrade.org.uk/products/default.aspx for a surprisingly wide range of retail and wholesale products.
