Tasting the Fairtrade Tea

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

Heeley MP Meg Munn attended the Co-operative’s Fairtrade Tea Tasting morning in London.  The event was organised to promote the news that the Co-operative is the UK’s first retailer to convert its entire own-brand hot beverage category worth over 16 million annually to Fairtrade. The invited guests tried a number of Fairtrade teas, and then discussed these with an expert tea buyer and blender.  

 

Meg said:

 

“What a great way to promote Fairtrade products. Tea is said to be the worlds most consumed beverage and the announcement by the Co-operative that it is converting its entire own-brand hot beverage range to Fairtrade is terrific. As a Co-operative Party member, I am especially delighted with this ethical move to benefit growers in some of the world’s poorest countries, including Malawi, which is producing Fairtrade tea for the first time.”
