Fairtrade Fortnight is an annual event that promotes the work of the Fairtrade Foundation and the wide variety of Fairtrade products available.
There is now so much Fairtrade food available, you can incorporate Fairtrade ingredients into most meals. For Fairtrade Fortnight 2021, I've pulled together a collection of recipes. These all have a significant proportion of the ingredients available as Fairtrade. There are meat, fish and vegetarian as well as a baking recipes to show just home many Fairtrade products are now available.
What is Fairtrade?
Fairtrade is an international organisation that promotes decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. Fairtrade Fortnight 2021, will be highlighting the growing challenges that climate change brings to farmers and workers.
All these recipes are easy to make, family friendly and use lots of fairtrade products.

2. Chickpea and Lentil Curry is full of flavour, healthy and a great storecupboard staple.
3. Banana and Cinnamon Muffins are not only a great way to bake with Fairtrade ingredients, they also make sure bananas never go to waste.
4. A simple Chilli that's big on flavour and a great one-pot dish for all the family.
5. A fish stew makes a great mid-week meal and is ready in just 20 minutes.
6. A Lamb tagine is a simple version of a North African tagine. Serve it with fairtrade couscous.

Choosing Fairtrade products can make a real different in the lives of the farmers who produce our food, not just during Fairtrade fortnight but throughout the year. For more information on Fairtrade, visit the website at www.fairtrade.org.uk and Fairtrade International.
