We are committed to sourcing specialty grade coffee that is ethically produced. Our importer has direct connections with some of the farmers and they import conventional and certified grown coffees to meet the demand of today’s social conscience consumers. We aim to bring out the characteristics in the coffee that people can enjoy, while offering a large selection so people can experiment with coffee from different countries or regions. We strive to provide great customer service to everyone and to brighten up their day.
Fair Trade Campus Week is the opportunity to celebrate the fair trade movement and Fairtrade certified products in Campuses across Canada! Mark your calendar as this year it falls the week of September 26-30!
The Canadian Fair Trade Network, along with Simon Fraser University, are requesting a meeting with Sami Siddiqui, the president and chief operating officer of Tim Hortons, to request that Tim Hortons offer Fairtrade Certified products, notably coffee and sugar on Canadian campuses.
Disturbing new chocolates revealing the dark side of the cocoa industry have arrived just in time for Easter. The Canadian Fair Trade Network and Rethink Communications have created a custom-molded Easter chocolate showing the harsh reality of child labour in cocoa production.
Last week, the Canadian Fair Trade Network and Rethink Communications took to a Canadian campus to raise awareness for what the United Nations refers to as, “some of the worst forms of child labour” with a stunt that left university students speechless. Passers-by were treated to a cup of hot cocoa that, when filled, activate thermal ink to reveal a devastating message: 1.8 million children work on cocoa plantations.
The Canadian Fair Trade Network and ReThink Communications have teamed up and launched the "The Label Doesn't Tell the Whole Story" campaign. This campaign is aimed at bringing awareness to and getting people thinking, talking and taking action on ongoing issues within garment and textile production and manufacturing.
