Pay fair for Fairtrade Fortnight with The Big Issue Shop.
As Fairtrade’s flagship event kicks off between February 26 to March 11, you can get involved with a collection of coffee, chocolate and even footballs available in our online store.
Fairtrade Fortnight shines a light on the farmers and workers behind our food and products.
Behind every sip of coffee, every kick of a football or every bite of a chocolate block, there is a person who toiled and grafted to get it to your doorstep.
For two weeks every year, running from February 26 to March 11 in 2018, the focus is on them and how when trade is fair, it can make the world a better place. Buying products bearing the Fairtrade mark ensures that farmers and growers get their fair share of the pay to improve their lives and the lives of their communities as well as closing the door to exploitation.
