Come and celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight with me & Albertine!
One of the joys of being Patron of Fairtrade Foundation
is I’ve had the opportunity to visit various smallholder producers all over the world, getting up close and personal with some mind-blowingly tasty ingredients and listening to the farmers’ stories. My job then is to come back and spread the word, talk about what I’ve seen and how being a part of Fairtrade really does change lives, not just for those who sell their produce into the Fairtrade market but for their whole communities. Peanuts straight from the ground in Malawi
, wine grapes on the vines in South Africa, bananas in St Lucia, and the olive, almond and spice growers in Palestine -I’ll never forget the people I met and their brave and deeply humbling stories.
So we were thrilled to host the official launch supper of Fairtrade Fortnight
here last Monday night with the great and good of the food world (check out Instagram!
), and now we invite you to Albertine to do your bit for world equilibrium: it’s not exactly tough, just rock up any time this week and order our specially featured Fairtrade wines, and dishes we’ve come up packed with Fairtrade ingredients.
