Vote for your Favourite Fairtrade product to win a hamper of goodies



To celebrate 20 years since the Fairtrade Mark launched in the UK, the Fairtrade Foundation is inviting the UK public to nominate their favourite Fairtrade product.

Head over to www.fairtrade.org.uk/favourite to make your nomination before 25 September, after which the winning product will receive an award at a ceremony to be held in London, on 15 October. Two products will be named as runners-up.

The public can nominate their favourite Fairtrade product; whether a supermarket own-label product, a branded product or a Fairtrade product consumed out of home.

Every person who makes a nomination will be entered into a prize draw to win one of three hampers of Fairtrade products.

In the UK there are now around 4500 Fairtrade products including tea, coffee, cocoa, chocolate, bananas, sugar, cotton, gold, cut flowers, wine and cosmetics. This all began from just 3 products back in 1994. Gold joined the party in 2011, with Cred's classic court wedding ring being our most popular Fairtrade gold piece.

In 2013 UK shoppers bought an estimated £1.78bn of Fairtrade products, which resulted in over £26m of Fairtrade Premiums being paid to producers.

So head over to Fairtrade.org.uk/favourite to be in with a chance of winning a Fairtrade hamper. And don't forget to tell your friends to vote too.
