York Fair Trade Forum will be taking part in the York University Ethical Food Fair.
We will have a stall on Market Square selling Fairtrade food from York’s fair trade shop, Fairer World.
Inside the library you’ll be able to find information about the history of Fair Trade in York and how you can get involved in promoting fair trade in the city.
We’re inviting the people of York to “Come On In” this Fairtrade Fortnight with a breakfast meeting at the Spurriergate Centre in the heart of the city.
We’re especially keen for business people who are supportive of fair trade but want to do more, to come along and find out about the different ways you can serve, sell and promote fair trade in your workplace.
We’ll be serving Fairtrade tea, coffee and juice, croissants and pastries with a choice of fair trade jams and spreads.
Admission is free but donations are welcome.
Come along to York’s fair trade shop, Fairer World and sample premium fair trade organic coffee grown by women farmers.
The coffee is produced by all female co-operatives working together in Nicaragua, Peru or the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Growing coffee is vital for the independence and self-reliance of these women improving their status in the household and society.
This event is part of both Fairtrade Fortnight and International Women’s Day.
A regular event for our friends in the Malton and Norton Fair Trade Group, the craft fair features local makers as well as fairly traded crafts, food and gifts.
Fairtrade refreshments are available.
The Fair Trade Forum is delighted to be involved again in the Annual Schools Conference at St John University.
Schools from around the area are invited to come along and find out about Fair Trade, share their fair trade stories and be inspired.
