World’s Biggest Coffee Break

Be part of the world's biggest coffee break at Pearson and Murphy's Cafe in Building 1, City campus for the World Fairtrade Challenge on Friday 13 May.

Did you know that Australians drink more than 2 billion cups of coffee a year, and spend more than $9 billion on coffee?

Yet in developing countries 80 percent of coffee is produced by smallholder farmers with less than 10 hectares of land, and many live on less than $2 per day. These farmers are faced with food insecurity and unstable livelihoods.

Fair trade organisations and supporters advocate that trade must benefit these producers and the most vulnerable people in the supply chain.

Make sure your coffee money counts this Fair Trade Fortnight by drinking delicious Fair Trade coffee for just $2.50 (for one day only) and unite with other coffee lovers to support Fair Trade farmers in their fight against climate change and trade inequalities. Don't forget to ask for Fair Trade coffee when ordering your coffee.

Find out what else is happening on campus by going to Fair Trade Fortnight.
