Fairtrade Fortnight 2008

Fairtrade Fortnight 2008
25 February - 9 March
Tate & Lyle sugar to be Fairtrade
Tate & Lyle sugar sold in shops is to be Fairtrade making it the biggest UK firm to do this. To earn a Fairtrade label, firms must pay local producers a fair price, and invest further to improve working conditions and local sustainability. Tate & Lyle's move coincides with Fairtrade Fortnight in the UK from 25 February to 11 March which aims to raise awareness. There has been an increase in the number of UK retailers stocking Fairtrade products, such as bananas, coffee and flowers, including Tesco, Sainsbury and Marks & Spencer.
