Fairtrade Fortnight is here!

Monday Feb 27, 2023

Did you know?

Coffee, bananas and chocolate could soon be much more difficult to buy.

Climate change is making crops like these harder and harder to grow. Combined with deeply unfair trade, communities growing these crops are being pushed to the brink.

But here’s the good news. 

More people choosing Fairtrade means extra income, power and support for those communities.

By making the small switch to Fairtrade, we can all support producers in protecting the future of some of our most-loved food and the planet.

On Tuesday 28 February, Fairtrade launches The Endangered Aisle, an exciting pop-up experience at 32 Shoreditch High Street, London, E1 6PG.

Find the location on Google Maps.

The Endangered Aisle will be open to the public:

  • Tuesday 28 February, 9am–4pm
  • Wednesday 1 March, 9am-4pm
  • Thursday 2 March, 9am-1pm

The Endangered Aisle will shine a light on the supermarket staples most at risk of becoming endangered from the climate crisis, including coffee, bananas and chocolate.

Fairtrade will also release new research highlighting how climate change is endangering the future of many favourite foods grown by farmers overseas.

‘We are not in charge of the climate, but we can collaborate a lot with it.’

This Fairtrade Fortnight, meet the farmers fighting for the future of our favourite foods.

Co-op was the first UK supermarket to stock own brand Fairtrade chocolate. By 2002 all our own brand chocolate was Fairtrade, and we haven’t looked back. Because we know where our cocoa beans from, we’re continuing to build lasting relationships with farmers, and we’ve seen the positive impact Fairtrade can have on individuals and communities, providing new schools, water pipelines or better access to medical care.


Buying Fairtrade is easy. There are over 6,000 Fairtrade products from coffee and tea to flowers and gold. When you shop, look for the FAIRTRADE Mark. The power is in your hands.Watch the Fairtrade Foundation video here.
