Each year, Acorn also supports Fairtrade Fortnight by promoting Fairtrade products to our staff, clients and job-seekers and learners. Fairtrade enables producers in developing countries to get a better deal  and to invest in their communities. We hold internal activities organised by staff including promoting Fairtrade products such as dry goods, chocolate tea and coffee. To find out more about the work of the Fairtrade Foundation please click here.
