MP Lilian Greenwood Looks Ahead to Fairtrade Fortnight with Visi


January 28, 2013


Nottingham South MP, Lillian Greenwood, and East Midlands MEP, Glenis Willmott, enjoyed an insight into the benefits buying Fairtrade when they visited The Co-operative Food in Wollaton on Friday.

The politicians met the Trowell Road store’s manager, Stephen Jackson Lee, and his team to raise awareness of the importance and positive effects of buying Fairtrade locally, ahead of this year’s Fairtrade Fortnight (25 February to 10 March), the annual celebration of the Fairtrade movement aimed at raising the profile of Fairtrade Mark products.

Lee said: “Raising awareness about the Fairtrade movement, and the power it has to change lives, is very important. We’re delighted to welcome Glenis and Lillian to our store to tell them about The Co-operative’s work with people in some of the world’s poorest countries.”

Lillian Greenwood said: “I’m really pleased to support Fairtrade fortnight. The Co-operative has a proud record of supporting the initiative and raising awareness about the conditions in which our food is produced. The staff deserve credit for the important work that the Wollaton store is doing.”
