Last year, 2012, was a year of momentum, innovation, and growth for Fair Trade. We saw significant growth in key categories such as coffee, produce and quinoa. With imports at an all time high, more farmers and workers earned more community development premiums than ever before (at $32 million!).

Fair Trade Breakfast<br /> May 13-14th, 2011
We can change the world by changing our breakfast. It’s as easy as a cup of coffee and a banana. In honor of World Fair Trade Day, join supporters around the world in a Fair Trade Breakfast to help raise awareness about the importance of social, economic and environmental sustainability in global supply chains. Every purchase matters, and every action that you take in support of Fair Trade make a big difference in the lives of farmers and farm workers throughout the world.

A Fair Trade house party is a great way to get your friends and family involved in a warm and intimate setting. The house party model has been an effective organizing tool for decades and is perfect for sharing the stories of Fair Trade communities and the tastes of Fair Trade products. A house party doesn’t have to be in a house, and it doesn’t even have to be a traditional party – anything goes!
