Free Breakfast To Celebrate World Fairtrade Day

Free Breakfast To Celebrate World Fairtrade Day

Thurles Fairtrade Town Committee is hosting a free Global Fairtrade Breakfast at the Farmers Market on Saturday, 14th May from 9.30-11.30am.  The breakfast will be one of thousands of events hosted by the global network of Fairtrade Organisations in seventy three countries to celebrate World Fairtrade Day. Call it breakfast or petit dejeuner or ontbijt, we can all make breakfast fair anywhere around our world by using Fair Trade Certified products.

Here in Thurles, our goal is for folks to appreciate how easy it is to create their own Global Fairtrade Breakfast every day, with easy access to over seventy five Fairtrade products in our local retailers.

To sweeten an already sweet deal, every trader in the Farmers Market will offer vouchers to their customers to sample the breakfast and enter a free draw for a Fairtrade hamper!

A Global Fairtrade Breakfast in Thurles is also an excellent opportunity to raise local awareness of the importance of Fair Trade. On World Fairtrade Day, citizens around the world express their support to Fairtrade as a concrete and efficient response to poverty reduction, economic and global food crisis, as well as climate change. Fairtrade ensures sustainable conditions for production and fair terms, and advocates for a fair economic system and international trading rules.
