Students from Buxton and Leek College were encouraged to think about what they were putting on their plates and whether those producing it were getting a fair deal during Fairtrade Fortnight.
In line with this year’s theme of Fairtrade breakfasts, teenagers on the level one learning for living and work course at Buxton campus invited High Peak Mayor Stuart Young and Mayoress Charlotte Young to join them for their most important meal of the day.
The breakfast menu included Fairtrade tea, coffee, orange juice, sugar, bananas, cereal, jam and marmalade served up at the Devonshire Dome alongside bacon and sausage baps.
All the products came from producers that have been inspected by the Fairtrade Foundation, which guarantees that not only have the farmers worked in safe conditions but also that they have been paid a living wage plus a Fairtrade premium for their work.
