LTT Vending are proudly supporting Fairtrade Fortnight from 28th February - 13th March 2011. With the support of participating customers, like Bradford University, the ingredients within the LTT Champagne premium hot drinks vending machine will be swapped for Fairtrade alternatives.
Fairtrade seeks to transform trading structures and practices in favour of the poor and disadvantaged. By facilitating trading partnerships based on equity and transparency, Fairtrade contributes to sustainable development for marginalised producers, workers and their communities. Through demonstration of alternatives to conventional trade and other forms of advocacy, the Fairtrade movement empowers citizens to campaign for an international trade system based on justice and fairness.
Last year amazing Fairtrade supporters got the UK making over one million and one swaps to Fairtrade products during Fairtrade Fortnight. In 2011 LTT are showing off the importance of Fairtrade to producers, the benefits of the Fairtrade premium for local communities and the change Fairtrade brings.
