It basically means meeting high standards of social, economic and environmental factors.
For exammple, you may buy a bar of chocolate with a Fairtrade label protecting workers' rights, payment of a Fairtrade minimum price and a Fairtrade premium.
In Sierra Leone, for example, Kola nut farmers whose crops go in the fizzy drink Karma Cola have used the Fairtrade monies to build a bridge to connect old and new parts of their village, send girls to school and fund teachers.
Fairtrade Fortnight runs from 12 March ... what will you be doing?

We believe every child and young adult at Sprowston Community High School should be ... 'Healthy, happy and safe; loved, valued and respected; and have high aspirations for their future.'
A summary of parents & carers views for years 7, 9, 10 and 11 has been compiled to show how well the school is performing in certain areas.
Fantastic to meet with the YR7 students with the top ATLs for the Spring Term so far. They are obviously making a really good impression in lessons and working hard.
Well done folks!
Congratulations to all pupils nominated for Star of the Week for the Spring half term, 2017.
Congratulations to all the students from this half term who achieved an Academic Success Award. This is to recognise their outstanding academic achievement and attitude.
The awards are given by class teachers to those students who have shone in terms of working extra hard in and out of lessons, or persevering with difficult work, along with those who have exceeded their personal target grades and achieved at a high level.
Well done to all students and keep up these really high standards for the rest of the year.
We've only gone and won it!! Excellent day at the 5 a side finals. Team 1 were Champions and Team 2 finished 4th in their competition.

Science meets art and old technology meets new. Stunning work
I have spent some time in science recently looking at the literacy needs of the subject.
You will see in the image that teachers are working hard to include literacy into science lessons and presentations.
With sub-zero temperatures, frozen mornings and bracing winds to contend with at this time of year, it can be difficult to understand why this term is called the spring term. Yet within a matter of weeks, the skies will clear, temperature rise and the first signs of the approaching summer will be upon us.
Sprowston Community High School has one main entrance on Cannerby Lane, which has student walking access and access for staff into the car parks. As a school we promote sustainable transport to and from school as Cannerby Lane is a very small residential road. Students are encouraged to walk, cycle or take the school bus.
