‘Fairtrade’ reception

Recently, I attended a parliamentary reception on ‘Fairtrade’ to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight and hear from cocoa farmers from across the world, particularly female farmers, who fight against the gender pay gap. It was really useful to find out more about this important and transformational initiative, and as someone who always tries to buy Fairtrade products wherever possible, I know that doing right by those in the developing world will continue to be a key focus of our future trade policy - something I have long campaigned on.
