Fairtrade Fortnight Breakfast

Before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half of the world. Martin Luther King Jr

But what didn’t he say?

There are times of the year when many people who grow the food we eat for breakfast can’t feed their own families.

Shocking, isn’t it?

Yes, the problem is so common that farmers & workers around the world have different names for it…

Hear from someone who knows.

Before fairtrade we were losing money which meant we had to buy less food. I had either breakfast or lunch. The portions were small and didn’t leave us full.

Farmers like Leonidas know what it’s like to work hard and still not earn enough to stop their families going hungry.

We had to measure the amount of food: the rice, the meat...those were critical times… Leonidas Jimenez Chaparro, banana farmer, Colombia

You have the power to change this.

Sit down for breakfast, stand up for farmers.

Britain’s making breakfast count! By having a Fairtrade breakfast you’re supporting farmers to put food on their tables all year round.
