Millions of visitors will be served Fairtrade certified tea, coffee, chocolate, sugar, bananas, wine and oranges across all locations, helping to support farmers, workers and their communities in developing countries.

An estimated Fairtrade premium of £100,000 will be generated over the two-and-a-half week period for communities in developing countries to invest in social, environmental and economic developmental projects, such as sports fields, schools, clean water drinking holes and medical clinics.

The decision to serve Fairtrade food is part of the Food Vision report, which sets the standards for catering at the event, during which around 14 million meals will be served.
