What is Fairtrade@Work
Fairtrade@work is a programme of Fairtrade Marketing Organization Eastern Africa that aims at promoting the use of Fairtrade, which is an ethical certification, as a Corporate Social Responsibility tool for Eastern Africa businesses.
The programme’s main objectives are:

(2) To increase awareness of Fairtrade among local businesses as well as their employees
You can become a F@W partner by purchasing Fairtrade products for your office use.
