Last year’s Ftea-438480_1920air Trade Fortnight coffee tasting event was so popular, that the UC Sustainability Office is repeating it. This time with tea. We want to know which  (Fair Trade) brands you like best and how it stacks up against other brands.

Speakers will give 5 minute talks on how fair trade makes a difference to communities worldwide and how to order Fair Trade certified beverages through the OfficeMax catalogue. So drop in, BYO lunch, and enter a draw to win a goodie bag full of fair trade treats.

When: Friday 20 May, 12pm-12:45

Where: Undercroft 101

Fair Trade Fortnight (6-22 May)  is an annual, nationwide celebration of all things fair trade and the difference that choosing fair makes for millions of farmers and workers in developing countries.
