Fair Trade Minneapolis
We encourage people to choose Fair Trade products so farmers & artisans earn a fair & sustainable living, the environment is protected by the Fair Trade standards, and products including chocolate are made 100% modern slavery free.
Ben and Jerry’s is the first ice cream maker to use Fair Trade ingredients: cocoa, sugar, vanilla, coffee & bananas. As Jerry said, “Nobody wants to buy something that was made by exploiting somebody else.”
Join us via Zoom Monday evenings 9/19, 10/3, 11/7 & on 2nd Mondays in 2023: 2/13, 3/13, 4/10, 5/8, … 7:30-9pm Central Time. Please find the Zoom links on our Facebook page.
We’re a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Donations gratefully accepted.
