During Fairtrade Fortnight, Northumbria University will be hosting two visitors from Zaytoun, a community interest company which finds a market place for Palestinian produce in the UK. Our visitors produce organic and Fairtrade olive oil and almonds, as well as large grain couscous maftoul and spice mix za’atar.

We will also be hosting Veena Nabar who has made a short film about co-operatives and coconut production in the Indian territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.


addition to hearing about their work there will be chance to sample a wide range of Fairtrade products, network and to ask questions to our speakers more informally.
