Fairtrade Fortnight is taking place this year from the 24th Feb- 9th March. This year’s focus is on making farmers get a fairer price for their bananas. In the UK we typically pay 11p for a loose banana, whilst we pay 20p for a loose apple. Due to supermarket pricing wars over the past 10 years the price of a banana has almost halved, whilst the cost of the production for the farmers has doubled- forcing many farming families into a cycle of poverty.
To highlight awareness of this cause Esquires Coffee Houses are launching a special ‘Banoffee Latte’ and ‘Banoffee Hot Chocolate’ made with our 100% certified Fairtrade Coffee and topped with pieces of Fairtrade Bananas.
