Civic House , 26 Civic Street, Glasgow G4 9RH
Our friends at Greencity Wholefoods will be celebrating 10 years of Fair Trade Olive Oil with Zaytoun over a 3 course, supper style, meal.
Fairtrade Fortnight, which this year runs from 25th February until 10th March, is a fantastic opportunity to highlight and commend the difference Fairtrade can make to lives and communities. At Greencity Wholefoods, sustainability, good working conditions and a fair supply chain are at the heart of our ethos, therefore, we have been longstanding supporters of Fairtrade going way back to 1984 with the first commercial distribution of Fairtrade coffee following a collaboration with Campaign Coffee Scotland.
This very special supper will allow you to taste some of Zaytoun’s delicious ingredients and as well as a delicious meal, we will also have a very special visitor from Palestine.
Khader Khader (pictured) is a farmer and board member of the Palestine Fair Trade Association. He produces Fairtrade olive oil from his family’s olive groves and now makes a sustainable livelihood, but that hasn’t always been the case. He spent 10 years working in a plastics factory in Israel before turning to farming. During the evening he will explain why he became a Fairtrade farmer and the importance of fair trade in his community, as well as talking about daily life in Palestine.

Are you …
- interested in buying food and crafts in support of fair trade, justice and – in particular – Palestinian farmers and craftworkers?
- wanting to find unique gifts and show practical solidarity with oppressed people?
- keen to source ethical brands of products that you use regularly, but are not widely or often available in shops you frequent?
Our wee Pop-Up Shop could be the answer to your shopping dilemmas!
Since November 2018, weeWONDERBOX and Hadeel have been collaborating to regularly offer this opportunity to source unique, hard-to-get, ethical products in central Glasgow, both in occasional pop-up shop form and also through the possibility of pick-ups of pre-ordered products at the Iona Community’s Glasgow base.
Today will feature the pop-up shop, with plenty of time to browse, plus a short presentation to kickoff Fair Trade Fortnight from a Scottish Fair Trade Forum representative at 11.30 … and of course, refreshments.
