We are members of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and the first Bafts week starts on Monday. Bafts is the recognised authority for UK Fair Trade shops and is part of the WFTO Europe and Global system overseeing producers, importers and retailers. If you want to see if there is a shop near you, go to www.bafts.org.uk
Bafts week is an idea that came out of the last AGM for the shops and suppliers to concentrate promoting Bafts to consumers. Nothing big has been planned for Sonia’s Smile but we will be having a ‘deal of the day’ and if you call in you may get a free taster of Divine chocolate or incense, call in and see, we’d be delighted to welcome you.
I will be kicking off the week by joining the board and other members at The FIG Tree in Garstang where we will be having a talk by Abiyot of Oromo coffee company and Ian from the Lorna Young Foundation.
