MBM Omega Supports Fairtrade Fortnight

22 February 2021

Fairtrade Fortnight sees thousands of people, companies and groups combine to shine a light on those producers who are exploited and underpaid.

At MBM Omega, we’re proud to encourage a caring culture throughout our business. This stems from our internal beliefs, and are underpinned by the internationally recognised certifications in quality and the environment we hold which help provide an ethical, sustainable and quality-driven business.

Farmers in areas such as Kenya, Ethiopia and Honduras are suffering from the test that climate change is having on agriculture. The global crisis has led to droughts, crop-disease, floods and heatwaves showing how those who are affected most by climate change are often those who contribute least to it.

At MBM Omega, we have an ongoing commitment to improving the environmental impact of our activities and services; this is reflected across every area of our business. As documented in our Environmental Policy, we consistently pursue eco and sustainable alternatives internally as well as consulting with clients to align with their ESG policies and product selection aspirations.

Fairtrade’s tagline this year is ‘Choose the World You Want’ by using your voice to raise awareness about the challenges that farmers are facing from climate change. A free online festival will be taking place on the Fairtrade website but this isn’t the only way you can get involved.  Promoting the cause on your social media helps, as well as hosting your own online event discussing Fairtrade which could be in the form of an open discussion, a quiz or an online coffee and cake morning. Whatever floats your Fairtrade boat, it’d be amazing to see your ideas come together to open up this important discussion.

You can also read and sign the Climate Coalition’s Climate Declaration and use your voice to tell politicians that you want a cleaner, greener and fairer future at the heart of plans to rebuild a strong economy.

We’re proud to support Fairtrade Fortnight as part of our Environmental, Social, and Governance and you can see the full range of our Eco Products on our website to help support our fight against climate change.
