Each year for two weeks in February and March, a spotlight is put on global trade through the Fairtrade Fortnight campaign.
Together with Fairtrade farmers, workers, and campaigners everywhere, Fairtrade Inverness group organises activities and events to highlight the difference Fairtrade can make to individual lives and communities.
