The Fairtrade Foundation is launching a campaign to support 500 million farmers worldwide struggling to survive despite producing 70% of the world's food.
The campaign warns that if this continues, many foods we take for granted could be in jeopardy - like coffee, tea, chocolate, bananas and sugar.
The public are also being asked to show their support by signing a virtual petition where they can turn themselves into foldable `mini-marchers' with thousands of tiny figures set to hold their demonstration in Parliament Square on Monday (4th March).
The campaign calls on the public to sign a petition to help struggling smallholder famers around the world facing a fight for survival due to unfair trading practices by big food businesses.
The five point plan of the campaign is as follows:
- Putting farmers first
- Ensuring a fair share of value chains
- Giving fair access to finance
- Building future-proofed farming
- Increasing the focus of government
