Special offer for WFTO members only: acommodation and meals covered!

For this year’s edition - planned for a 3-day weekend between 12-14 October -, the organisation wants to put an emphasis on the European dimension of this issue. They are, therefore, inviting European WFTO members to attend Altrocioccolato (and possibly others events as well) and have their own stands at the fair. They are proposing to cover for accommodation and meals during the 3 days of the event for all participating WFTO members delegates, and inviting them to attend a meeting with Ivory Coast public institutions and Cooperatives involved in Fair Trade.
