World Fair Trade Day - Saturday 9 May

Saturday 9 May is the seventh annual World Fair Trade Day, when the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO, formerly IFAT) and its members promote global awareness of fair trade. The second Saturday of May every year is a great opportunity to celebrate the 100% fair trade organisations and companies, known as Alternative Trading Organisations (AT0s).

Join with fair trade supporters around the world by holding a 100% fair trade breakfast – there’ll be breakfasts held in France, Norway, Poland, the United States and here in the UK. You could also use this as an opportunity to encourage your local European Parliamentary candidates to sign our pledge for fair trade, in advance of the European Elections on 4 June.
