Councillor Wyn Williams, Chairman of the Gwynedd Fairtrade Group, said:
“If your business is yet to start using Fairtrade products, then why not consider choosing Fairtrade next time you make an order for tea, coffee, sugar, orange juice, jam, honey, nuts, flowers, chocolates and so on. The list of produce available is endless.
“It will also be a way to show your support to the cause and could be an extra selling point for your business.
“Fairtrade is all about a better deal for producers in the developing world. Fairtrade has the potential to lift millions out of poverty. Wales is the world’s first Fair Trade Nation and Gwynedd have also received county status. This is a fantastic achievement but it’s only the beginning of our journey towards helping to create a fairer world.”
