World Fair Trade Day is observed on the second Saturday of May every year. The day is dedicated to promoting and raising awareness about fair trade practices worldwide.

The day aims to highlight the importance of fair trade in empowering producers, promoting sustainable development, and advocating for social and economic justice. With a rich history and growing significance, World Fair Trade Day has become a global movement that brings together individuals, businesses, government bodies and organisations committed to creating a fairer and more equitable world.
