One-Month Challenge 2012

Posted January 30th 2012

The Manitoba Council for International Cooperation (MCIC) is excited to present the sixth annual Fair Trade One-Month Challenge.

We invite all Manitobans to take up the challenge by only consuming fair trade coffee, tea and chocolate, rather than conventional brands, for the period from Valentine’s Day, February 14th to March 14th.

In the past, thousands of Manitobans have participated in the One-Month Challenge. Merchants have reported that their fair trade sales grow noticeably during the OMC and have increased with each annual OMC period.

MCIC has posters, brochures, stickers, tent cards and other promotional and educational materials, as well as speakers, available. Contact us at or call (204) 987-6420.
