Annie payed a visit to 'Bunscoil Bheanna Boirche' a primary school in Co.Down as part of Fairtrade Fortnight. Annie led a Fairtrade workshop for the P4-P7 pupils. At Suki Tea we believe that we can use our knowledge about Fairtrade to help enlighten others and help our community to also encourage others to try and opt for Fairtrade products.
Annie told the pupils all about the importance of Fairtrade. The pupils had been learning about Fairtrade before Annie's visit and Annie was delighted to see everyone's enthusiasm and the knowledge and understanding of Fairtrade that the pupils already had. Bunscoil Bheanna Boirche' Primary School are the proud ambassadors of the Fairtrade message in their local community.
The Pupils work hard to spread the Fairtrade message and were keen to know if Annie thought that all products would be Fairtrade in the future? Annie said that she hoped that there will not be a need for Fairtrade in the future. There is, unfortunately, a need for it in today’s world – we’ve built a business to be proud of, focussed on a great tasting, quality, HONEST cuppa.
Suki encourages you to make a difference and Choose Fairtrade products. As well as guaranteeing that producers are paid fairly, Fairtrade certification provides an additional social premium for growers, which they can use to develop the business or pay for community projects – as is democratically determined by the farmers themselves.
