Meat consumption is on the increase around the world in ‘developed’ and ‘developing’ countries alike. But it is clearly the most financially wealthy countries that really take the biscuit (or should that be the burger?) when it comes to eating meat.
Today, The London Coffee Festival opens its doors to celebrate London’s bustling and vibrant coffee scene. This year’s festival will feature over 250 artisan coffee and gourmet food stalls including Fairtrade coffee brand, CaféDirect (set up by Fair Trade charity, Twin – who also set up Liberation Foods).
After all that festive overindulgence and being creative with the Christmas turkey leftovers, there’s nothing better than a comforting Fairtrade nutty recipe that’s not only easy on the waistline and your wallet but also easy on your conscience.
When people make a conscious effort to buy Fairtrade products, such as our nuts, it empowers the farmers and workers who grow the products to get a fair deal – a fair deal on price, a fair deal on working conditions, a fair deal on trading terms and a Fairtrade premium that is spent on projects to benefit the local community.
STIR-UP SUNDAY: This coming Sunday brings with it an old tradition.. Stir-up-Sunday! It is the last Sunday before advent when many people take to the kitchen and make their Christmas puddings.
