Vending Supporting Fairtrade Fortnight
SnackTime is supporting Fairtrade Fortnight and taking part in the 'Take a Step' campaign. We have been encouraging our vending machine customers to make one small change and take a step to a better trade system for farmers in the developing world. This has included encouraging people to purchase the Fairtrade chocolate products from our snack vending machines. Did you know that Maltesers are now 100% Fairtrade? For our coffee vending machine customers, we are promoting our own Fairtrade range of Cafe Joe coffee, tea and hot chocolate.
The Fairtrade Foundation already benefits over 1.5 mil farmers around the world by ensuring that they receive a fair price for their crops.
Here at the SnackTime Group head office, we have been doing our bit by:
- Changing our coffee in our vending machines to our Cafe Joe range of Fairtrade coffee
- Promotional brochures around the office
- Posters by our vending machines reminding staff and visitors to chose a Fairtrade drink or chocolate bar rather than non-Fairtrade
- Encouraging our sales team to promote Fairtrade products to new customers of both coffee vending machines and snack vending machines
