We have some exciting news to share – as well as the olive farmers visiting during Fairtrade Fortnight, we will also be hosts to a cotton producer from India.
Mrunal Lahankar from Hyderbad, India will be at Fair Do’s all day on Thursday 8th March. She will first meet with some groups of textiles students from local high schools including Mary Immaculate RC School. Mrunal will then take part in meet-and-greet sessions with customers from 10.30am to 12.30pm, and 3.30pm-4.30pm. All are welcome to come with their questions during these times.
Mrunal says, “I feel that a Movement like Fairtrade Fortnight makes the society believe that trade can be a fundamental driver of poverty reduction and sustainable development. The movement of this type helps consumers and buyers [stay] informed about the needs of producers and the opportunities that Fairtrade offers to change and improve their situation.”
