Ireland's largest coffee brewers Bewley's aim to switch to 100% fairly-traded coffee by the end of this year.

Other retailers like Aldi have launched fairly-traded flowers like poinsettias and roses.
Fairtrade Fortnight, which gets underway tomorrow, will encourage more suppliers to use ethically responsible sources and ensure that workers in developing countries get a fair and stable price for their produce.
