Esquires Coffee Houses offers free coffee for Fairtrade Fortnight

Coffee shop franchise Esquires Coffee Houses is giving customers one free Fairtrade beverage for every five bought during Fairtrade Fortnight. The promotion, which is running until the 8th March, rewards Esquire's customers for supporting Fairtrade with double points on the loyalty card scheme used in all Esquires stores nationwide.

The chain became the first high street coffee franchise to sell Fairtrade coffee as standard in 2007 and it has been furthering its commitment to communities ever since by supporting charities both here and abroad.

Peter Kirton, Managing Director of Esquires Coffee Houses UK, says: 'We are extremely proud of our Fairtrade products, as well as our commitments to charities such as One Water, Coffee Kids and the local causes we have supported around our stores.

'By choosing to source Fairtrade-certified goods, Esquires and our customers can ensure that the communities supplying our coffee receive the premiums they deserve, helping them to create a sustainable environment for their families and businesses.

'Our commitment to communities runs throughout the year. However, Fairtrade fortnight is a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of this particular initiative and the positive impact that is made through buying Fairtrade products.'

Esquire Coffee Houses currently offer Fairtrade coffee, tea and hot chocolate drinks as standard, as well as Fairtrade sugar sticks and a vanilla syrup.
