About this Event

On Thursday 27 February, with the great support of Edinburgh Council Procurement team we are running an event at Waverley Court 5-7pm of interest to anyone wishing to support and promote fair trade.

As you may be aware, Fair and Ethical Trading is taken seriously in Scotland, and purchasing plays a crucial role in ensuring producers and manufacturers from developing countries continue to receive a fair wage and are treated fairly for the goods they supply.

This event is a fantastic opportunity for all interested in purchasing Fair Trade, and especially those who are involved in buying for schools, public services, corporations and other organisations, to engage with local Fair Trade Suppliers to discuss the range of Fair Trade options available for them to purchase.

We have Leocadie Voho, cocoa producer from Cote d’Ivoire, speaking on this year’s Fairtrade Fortnight theme, “She Deserves”, and will also have presentations from Bala Sport, Koolskools and Pacari Chocolate.

The approximate timing is:

5pm: Formal opening,

5.05-5.25: Cocoa producer presentation

5.30-5.50: Bala Sport presentation

5.55-6.15: Koolskools presentation

6.20: Pacari chocolate presentation

Free Fairtrade refreshments will be available and there will be a

Fairtrade market with goods from:

Bala Sport (sports balls)
