25 February – 10 March 2019
Fairtrade Fortnight returned in February and despite the snow Scotmid got involved! Scotland has been a Fairtrade nation since 2013 and Scotmid Co-operative actively supports Fairtrade Fortnight. Supporting Fairtrade guarantees a fair deal for farmers and producers in the developing world.
Choose Fairtrade products
We’re proud to stock Fairtrade products in all of our Scotmid Co-operative stores. From Fairtrade bananas to chocolate, tea to coffee, there are so many ways to support Fairtrade when you shop at Scotmid.
Take part in a Fairtrade event
This Fairtrade Fortnight, Scotmid Co-operative supported community events across Scotland to promote Fairtrade –Scotmid supported the Edinburgh Festival event at the Out of the Blue Drill Hall.
Go bananas for Fairtrade
Bananas are at the heart of Fairtrade Fortnight this year. Bananas are the most popular and most traded fruit in the world, but still only one in three of all bananas sold in the UK each year are certified as Fairtrade. You can do your bit by only buying Fairtrade bananas. We’re proud to only sell Fairtrade bananas at Scotmid Co-operative.
