Information for caterers
Music and joy are beneficent — and likewise is the purpose of our festival, in the broadest possible sense!
In organising the festival, we adhere to the principle of preferring responsibly produced and fair trade* products to be used in catering for the festival. We expect each caterer to ensure that all the offered products originating from developing countries (e.g., coffee, tea, cocoa, sugar, wine, etc.) have a fair trade background — i.e., that they come with a corresponding certificate (Fairtrade, Fair for Life, WFTO certified, etc.). In addition, it is recommended that all the other food products to be offered are also selected with a responsible and eco-friendly background in mind.
On our part, we offer advice for finding and choosing such products, and also trainings on the topic of fair trade if requested.
*Fair trade is an international movement and alternative business model that is based on dialogue, transparent and honest trading practices, and aspiration towards greater justice in international trade. Fair trade concentrates on marginalised producers and small farmers in developing countries, offering them better conditions to help them rise above poverty and advance the sustainable development of their communities. Long-term partnerships also enable the producers to invest in environment-friendly production. This helps to promote handicraft, organic farming and sustainable use of natural resources.
The fair trade movement strives for a system of trade that would prioritise people and promote social, economic and environmental justice.
