The Fairtrade Starter Pack
The Fairtrade Starter Pack helps you introduce Fairtrade
to your friends, in a soiree setting at home,
community hall or a group at church with a minimum of fuss. The idea of it being a soiree, is, to create a relaxed atmosphere, where people can mix socially, have fun, ask questions and enjoy the taste testing.
A full range of coffee, tea and chocolate is delivered to your door with information to help you get started. We include a short explanation for you to adapt as you wish, plus lots of simple facts and figures that verifies all the information.
You will find, as we have, that many people are appreciative to find out that they can make a difference to the lives of third world producers by buying Fairtrade, others are grateful know what is available and where else they can get their fraitrade products from.

Look forward to purchasing through you again,
Just wanted to let you know that I think your $150 pack for people to advocate to friends and acquaintances with is a fabulous idea! I worked for World Vision in volunteer management a while back (about 12 years ago) and I think this is one of the most accessible and innovative ideas for advocacy and volunteering that I've heard.

Sometimes its perseverance...
We have found that many a work place and church, have changed to use Fairtrade products, because of one persistent enthusiast. Change always takes time; new ideas need breathing and thinking room, so as to be understood and grow. You may be the first person to have introduced Fairtrade or you have introduced friends to another place where they can get their Fairtrade products.
Maybe you and a few friends can plan a gathering, together.
