Staff at Loreto High School, Chorlton, celebrated Fairtrade fortnight with a Fairtrade break in the staffroom. This was well attended and raised awareness about the importance of Fairtrade.
CAFOD founded the Fairtrade Foundation in 1992 along with Christian Aid, Oxfam, Traidcraft, the World Development Movement and the National Federation of Women’s Institutes.
Fairtrade products such as cocoa, coffee, tea, sugar, fruit, cotton and thousands of other top quality goods have been bought by companies for sustainable prices. This ensures that the world’s poorest growers and producers are able to earn a decent living and have a little extra to put back into their communities.
