Farmers celebrate London’s Fairtrade Olympics

July 29th, 2012

The MD and President of Kuapa Kokoo

The executive director and president of the leading Fairtrade cocoa co-operative Kuapa Kokoo travelled from Ghana to London recently to meet Fairtrade campaigners.

Emmanuel Arthur and Christiana Ohene-Agyare congratulated London on hosting the fairest Olympic Games ever. At the 2012 Olympics millions of visitors will enjoy Fairtrade tea, coffee, chocolate, sugar, bananas, wine and oranges. That’s an estimated 7.5 million cups of tea, 14 million cups of coffee and 10 million bananas.

These sales will generate an estimated Fairtrade premium of £100,000 over the six week period of the Games, to be invested by communities in developing countries in their own social and economic projects.

It will be the first time that the Fairtrade Mark has appeared on the official menus at an Olympic Games.
