Fairtrade: Stori Bilong Fairtrade

September 3, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - September 21, 2016 @ 3:00 pm

Fairtrade is a global movement that advocates for better working conditions and improved terms of trade for farmers and workers in developing countries. Beginning in 2005 with a coffee growing smallholder farmer organisation in the highlands of Papua New Guinea, Stori Bilong Fairtrade tells the tale of Fairtrade in the Pacific. This photographic exhibition starts with producers and follows their products to Auckland and around the world.

Fairtrade ANZ currently supports more than 20,000 smallholder farmers in Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, the Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste to develop strong and resilient farmer organisations and businesses, with the objective of fostering sustainable development of their communities.
