From 26th February to 11th March, FAIR. are teaming up TT Liquor and hosting a series of events for Fairtrade Fortnight 2018, raising money for the Fairtrade Foundation.
FAIR. are a drinks and spirits company dedicated to ethical business practice. They believe in treating all people fairly, and this belief has taken them all over the world to source the best ingredients for their high-quality spirits – and to make sure the people sourcing them are treated fairly and equally.
In fact, they’re the world’s first and only Fairtrade Certified spirits brand – respecting over 200 rules to make sure farmers get a fair price, enabling them to cover production costs, live from farming, educate their children and build schools. Both businesses have the same core belief – to treat people fairly and equally.
Upcoming Events, all hosted at TT Liquor • Launch of Fairtrade Fortnight
FAIR. are hosting a party at TT Liquor in Shoreditch on 28th February, showcasing delicious cocktails using FAIR. Spirits including a sneak preview at the soon to be launched Cacao Liqueur, made using Organic & Fairtrade certified cocoa nibs from Peru.
Guests will be treated to a thought-provoking talk by Paul Bungener – the Global Brand Ambassador for FAIR who will be joined by Euan Venters, Commercial Director for Fairtrade. Euan has more than 25 years’ commercial experience in the FMCG sector. Before joining Fairtrade, Euan was Managing Director for Greene King Brewing & Brands, and prior to that he worked at Sara Lee Corporation for 16 years.
