fairtrade chronicle 1991 – 2016

fairtrade likes to extend its gratitude to each and every-one who has contributed to the success of the events.

To the exhibitors and to the trade visitors. To our long-term partners in co-organising the events and to our sales agents. To the supporting authorities. To the hall owners. To the sponsors and to the organisers of country pavilions. To our media partners, to the international media and to the journalists. Last but not least to all our suppliers.


25 years fairtrade - We thank all who have supported us during the past 25 years and look forward to the next 25 years!
