Birch Green celebrates Fairtrade Fortnight

Staff and residents at Birch Green tucked into healthy and tasty food this week to mark Fairtrade Fortnight.


The event, promoted by the Fairtrade Foundation, is aimed at highlighting the plight of the world’s poorer farmers, and runs from February 25.


The foundation estimates that small farmers grow around 70 per cent of the world’s food, but only receive an average of 3 per cent of the retail price once the produce hits supermarket shelves.


At Birch Green, Fairtrade bananas, chocolate and tea were among the tasty treats enjoyed to mark the occasion.


Karen House, lifestyle coordinator, said: “It was great fun trying the Fairtrade food, and the bananas in particular were very popular, as was the chocolate.”
