Wensleydale are learning about Fairtrade and how it benefits Fairtrade workers and farmers. A visible demonstration of this is the 90kg rice challenge.
90kg is the amount of rice that a Malawian farmer needs to sell to pay for a year’s basic secondary education for one child. Wensleydale are attempting to meet this challenge and sell all the rice before the end of Fairtrade Fortnight.
