IN 2015 Fairtrade Fortnight was launched with this short film. Today, Fairtrade tea is under threat by supermarket group J Sainsburys who want to ‘self certify’ their own tea as ‘fairly traded’ with themselves and decide which farmers should receive ‘their support’ Under Fairtrade, farmers are in control of their own Fairtrade funds and their certification is done by an accredited international independent charity.

View the film and think before buying your tea without the Fairtrade mark.
