"With COVID having such terrible impacts across the globe, I took some comfort this past year seeing progress made on living incomes. Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire initiated a new living income differential, covering 60 percent of the world’s cocoa farmers, and the International Coffee Organization led a new global pledge to support living incomes. Fair traders have been central advocates for these changes and will be even better able to push things forward in a post-COVID future"

“Although there have been many challenging situations during the past year, one of the things COVID has demonstrated is how connected we are to people around the world. It would be great if we could use the solidarity and collaboration used to deal with this world crisis in the areas of climate change and fair trade"

“Through these tumultuous times, we must not let up on the support of farmers and artisans in the global south. We must be thoughtful of the products we choose every day and also encourage vendors to offer more fair trade products when available. Our choices more than ever can have a meaningful and wide-reaching impact on producers and local businesses"
