The Government is committed to supporting Fairtrade around the world. Over the last six years, the Department for International Development (DfID) has provided £18 million to Fairtrade International to support their work and strengthen the global Fairtrade system. This includes Fairtrade producer and worker organizations that are the drivers of inclusive economic, environmental and social development in their communities around the world. DfID continues to actively engage with Fairtrade on a variety of projects and campaigns, such as the forthcoming Fairtrade Fortnight from 27 February to 12 March. Minister Stewart will be speaking at the All Party Parliamentary Group event marking the launch of Fairtrade Fortnight where he will meet Fairtrade campaigners from the UK and a Fairtrade coffee producer from Tanzania.
