Once again it has reached that time- the end of Fairtrade Fortnight and the fast approaching Easter season. To celebrate such events, it is only right to acknowledge the wonderful Fairtrade Company that Oxfam supports.
Fairtrade Fortnight is an event that hugely raises awareness of the hard work that the producers do, as they make such luxury items a daily expectance in today’s society. You may have noticed the recipes inside Oxfam shops and on the website as well as the huge abundance of Fairtrade products on display, which help strengthen this amazing cause. By purchasing such products it makes it easier for the producers to earn a better living with the support that you have provided.

Now try not to be disheartened at the ending of such a momentous event as Easter is just around the corner. This is another reason to celebrate for Oxfam as if you enter the shops you will surely not miss the selection of Easter eggs scattering the shelves. It is surely the point of call for many children visiting the shop.
The Easter Eggs currently on display, like the huge array of other products available in Oxfam, come from the wonderful company Divine. Such a company has grown globally and as a result has succeeded in growing a market for Fairtrade chocolate. In fact Oxfam is the only retailer that Divine supplies its whole range to (not that we’re bragging.)
So what is your favourite Easter product to sample on this season? Is it the mini chocolate eggs or the more glamorous full sized eggs? Well I have to say that after working on the till staring at the eggs for some time, I really would not mind which I ate first! In their bright Devine packaging they look absolutely amazing, and knowing that they are supporting a cause as worthy as Fairtrade makes them taste even better.
If you want to find out more about Divine and the products that they supply to Oxfam there is an abundance of material just a mouse click away.
But in the meantime why not pop into Oxfam Books Petergate and see for yourself what the fuss is about. We have a “eggstremely” huge selection of Easter eggs on display to get over the ending of Fairtrade Fortnight. Sorry I told myself I would not use any egg-related puns….
