The Big Fairtrade Fortnight Quiz

What’s Fairtrade? Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.
With Fairtrade you have the power to change the world every day. With simple shopping choices you can get farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their future and lead the dignified life everyone deserves.
So spare a thought for where your favourite foods come from and the people who produce them and remember to look for the Fairtrade Mark and buy Fairtrade.

Fairtrade Fortnight 22 February to 7 March 2021
For two weeks each year at the end of February and start of March, thousands of individuals, companies and groups across the UK come together to share the stories of the people who grow our food and drinks and who grow the cotton in our clothes, people who are often exploited and underpaid, people who are under particular pressure right now, both because of Covid and because of climate change.

To help mark Fairtrade Fortnight and raise more awareness our local Preston Fairtrade Group, have prepared a detailed Quiz packed full of really interesting questions such as:
