Cafés in a stir about Wales’ Favourite Fair Trade Cuppa poll

leave a comment »

a Fair Trade cuppaThere are only ten days left to vote for Wales’ Favourite Fair Trade Cuppa!

Our annual poll is all about trying to find the café or other catering outlet that sells Wales’ favourite hot Fair Trade drink.

What’s more, one lucky voter will be drawn at random from the ballots to win a hamper filled with Fair Trade goodies!

By taking part, Fairtrade devotees can show the world how much they value their daily Fair Trade cuppa, and the whole project adds value to the Fairtrade brand.

So vote:

  • Online through our website at
  • Via SMS* by texting CUPPA to 78866 with the café’s name; the café’s town; your own name; and your email address. (Those last two details allow yourself to be entered into the hamper draw.)
  • Tell us about your favourite café at
  • Finally, cafés across Wales have Freepost voting postcards which can be sent back to us at the Wales Co-operative Centre.

This presitigious award has been won in previous years by Milgi’s Lounge Bar, Cardiff (2009) and Coffee Culture in Llandudno (2010). Last year, 1390 votes were cast in the Cuppa Poll, so lets try to top this in 2011!

The poll closes at midnight on 13th March, the last day of Fairtrade Fortnight 2011. We will announce the winners shortly after this.

Please visit for more information and to request posters, coasters or postcards to display in your café.

*Text votes will be charged at your standard rate.
