The Fairtrade Foundation was established in 1992 for the purpose of empowering poor and vulnerable food producers in third world countries. Members of this increasingly influential group have made every effort to minimise the chances of exploitation in the developing world. They have raised awareness and ensured that the UK’s consumers have the option of purchasing Fairtrade products. However, the Fairtrade representatives realise that more has to be done in order to highlight the importance of ethical food sourcing. It is for this reason that they have organised the yearly Fairtrade Fortnight. The first Fairtrade Fortnight took place in 1998. Scottish volunteers held talks and organised local events to promote the Fairtrade Foundation. The major retailers also opted to advertise a variety of Fairtrade products during the fortnight. The campaign was deemed a success and subsequently spread across the UK. The next Fairtrade Fortnight has been scheduled for February 24th to March 9th 2014. Spicers of Hythe have opted to mark the occasion by creating a variety of Fairtrade hampers. We have filled the elegant hand crafted hampers with a wide selection of Fairtrade foods.The Fairtrade chocolate treats hamper includes Divine Fairtrade white chocolate and dark chocolate with raspberries. We’ve also packed the Fairtrade afternoon tea treats hamper with ethically sourced Colombian coffee and decadent mint chocolate. The products in these Fairtrade hampers are bound to satisfy everybody’s tastes. If you have an appreciation for quality produce and a sense of responsibility for the maintenance of fair and equal rights then you should buy one of the Fairtrade gifts from Spicers of Hythe.
