Fairtrade Trade Fair at the Guildhall, with the City of London Corporation Fairtrade Group
This event aimed to showcase the range of Fairtrade wholesale and retail products now on the market and to encourage more City firms to serve Fairtrade products at their events.
With over 150 people from City firms (catering contract managers, procurement managers, CSR managers and those interested in sustainability), Livery companies and the Court of Common Council signed up to attend, there was a fantastic atmosphere in the Guildhall's stunning Basinghall Suite. Suppliers from Peros, Premcrest, La Riojana, Liberation!, Ubuntu chocolate, Geobar, Divine, Qi, Sustain and CyT UK offered samples of tea, chocolate, nuts and wine whilst also explaining more about the origin of their products and how the products could be purchased, wholesale, retail or via catering companies. We were delighted to welcome the Lady Mayoress who enjoyed a tour of the room, sampling and learning more about the products available.
