Gourmet products from Interrupcion Fair Trade, Argentina – now at Global Fayre, Springfield!
We’ve just taken our first delivery from a new member of the Fair Trade Federation.
Interrupcion Fair Trade decribe themselves as “a stakeholder community that is working to build a sustainable future through responsible consumption, sustainable development, organic farming and fair trade…….The journey toward a sustainable future begins when we interrupt* habitual ways of understanding our personal impact on the world to develop a new, global sense of influence that creates responsible action. This concept of interrupting* to create a more responsible, healthy and sustainable form of participation in society gave us our name: interrupcion*”
Interrupcion began as a non-profit organization in Buenos Aires, Argentina dedicated to promoting socially responsible business and citizen participation in response to the dramatic Argentine economic collapse in 2001. Their first socially responsible products arrived in New York in 2003: colorful, scented candles from a small candle making cooperative in Buenos Aires.
Their product catalogue has grown extensively as they continue to partner with small and medium producers in Argentina to create premium, all-natural Organic and Fair Trade products while investing to build sustainability into each aspect of production.
We’re not quite their first retailers in Missouri; they already sell through Whole Food Market in St Louis and Kansas City but we’re excited to add their Grocery products to our great range of gourmet Fair Trade foods.
SO today’s first challenge is to get these great products out on the shelves in our store in downtown Springfield, MO. After that we’ll be adding them to our online store too – so if you’re in the neighborhood pop in and ask for a sample!
If you’re not in the neighborhood get online and order some……the first ten online orders that include Interrupcion products will get a whopping 15% discount on the entire order. How awesome is that?! Just enter the code “chimi” before you check out and the discount will be applied if you are one of the lucky 10.
We’ll tell you more about each of the products in later posts, but here’s what they look like:
