Visit the Fairtrade Foundation stall at this year’s London Coffee Festival, where they are showcasing some of the high quality coffee which bears the FAIRTRADE Mark, and showing off some new innovations in the field.

The London Coffee Festival celebrates London’s bustling and vibrant coffee scene and we’ll be there at the heart of it. The festival will feature over 250 artisan coffee and gourmet food stalls, tastings and demonstrations from world class baristas, interactive workshops, street food, coffee-based cocktails, live music, DJs, art exhibitions and much more.

If your business is interested in how stocking Fairtrade products could benefit your business and provide a connection to the farmers who grow your beans, come and visit the Fairtrade Foundation on stand SR1 in the showroom.
