The first annual Canadian Fair Trade Awards were presented to seven Canadian retail and food service businesses on September 20, 2012 at a ceremony in Toronto. These organizations were recognized for their ongoing commitment to Fair Trade – an ethical approach to doing business that supports farming communities, ethical labour practices and sustainable agriculture around the world.
MCIC would like to congratulate the Manitoba Liquor Control Commission (MLCC) for winning the category of Provincial Liquor Board. The MLCC supports Fair Trade initiatives throughout the province, with 24 Fair Trade wines available in its stores throughout Manitoba, more than any other Canadian province.
