Find out how you can give farmers a sweet and fair deal at the Fairtrade family workshop on Sunday (10 March).

The free event takes place at Charlton House from 1-4pm.

There are over 4,500 Fairtrade products for sale in our shops, including coffee, chocolate, flowers, bananas and sugar. Fairtrade is about getting better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.
