For several years the Isle of Man has enjoyed having Fairtrade Island status, a position which has been supported locally by the general public and which has also enhanced the Island’s reputation in the international arena. It is now time to renew our status.
To help secure this we want to raise awareness of Fairtrade amongst the Island’s business community, demonstrating its role in helping people in less developed countries feed themselves and provide for their families in a sustainable and more equitable way – and how support for Fairtrade complements, rather than competes with, the growing demand for more local food sourcing.
Business support will be vital in helping renew our status and we are holding a presentation in Douglas on Tuesday 10th November to help more businesses get on board. Please get in touch on 800464 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend.
