Activities

Upcoming events:

On the 7th of November Fair Trade Coke organizes an event in which we celebrate the coca leaf. During this evening we talk about the cultural, medicinal and economical value of this special plant. The aim of this evening is to break with the stigma of coca being a dangerous crop. As Fair Trade Coke deems an international market of coca products a constructive alternative towards tackling violence and corruption, this night we explore and taste the possibilities of coca, other than cocaine. Join us in Amsterdam on the 7th of November!
