Celebrating all things Fairtrade in Sheffield over the years

For two weeks each year at the end of February and start of March, thousands of individuals, companies and groups across the UK come together to share the stories of the people who grow our food and drinks, grow the cotton in our clothes and of people who are often exploited and underpaid.

Sheffield has been a big campaigner of Fairtrade for many years and for Fairtrade Fortnight we have dug into the archives to find the pictures of you making a positive choice with the products you buy from cake to bananas.

See who you can spot in these retro pictures going back almost two decades.
