  • Louise Nicholls, Managing Director at Suseco, Vice Chair of IEMA, Tutor for Cambridge University Institute of Sustainable Leadership, and former Corporate Head of Human Rights, Food Sustainability and Food Packaging at Marks and Spencer. Passionate about helping organisations make faster traction on Sustainability and Human Rights.
  • Marike de Peña, Chair of the Banana Network for the Central, Latin American and Caribbean Network of Fairtrade small producers and workers (CLAC), and Fairtrade Foundation Board Member. Fount of expert knowledge on producers, as director and co-founder of banana small producer organisation Banelino in the Dominican Republic.

This will be our very first in the webinar series Fair Focus, with advice on the vital topics of Fairtrade, human rights, global supply and the current, often-changing situation for producers on the ground.

Find out more about what’s really going on for farmers and workers in origin countries, and what you can do to help them.

In this Fair Focus webinar, we will be answering your questions on the pandemic’s effects on producers in Latin America and what companies like yours can do to maintain ethical and sustainable practices to help them during this pandemic and beyond.

  • How can businesses live up to their ethical and sustainable sourcing values in this time of crisis?
  • What is really happening for farmers and workers in producer countries like Colombia, Dominican Republic and Peru and what can I do to help them?
  • How can my business protect its supply chains, and the human rights of the people working within them?
  • How can businesses help consumers feel good about their purchasing decisions?

We will finish with a Q&A session so come ready with questions!
