Breweries showcase Fairtrade and organic beers

01 April, 2009

Five breweries will be promoting their organic and Fairtrade brands at this month's Natural & Organic Products Europe show at London's Olympia.

The British Beer & Pub Association is coordinating the breweries at the event from April 5-6, to give international buyers a taste of "the Best of British", including traditional premium ales, bitters and honey beers.

Freeminer, Fuller's, Marston's, St Peter's Brewery and Shepherd Neame will promote seven organic, one organic Fairtrade and one Fairtrade brand.

Janet Witheridge, of the BBPA, said: "We work with members to promote their brands around the world but this is the first time we have exhibited a single category of beer.

"These wonderful and hugely varied beers already have a strong following here in Britain, so we are delighted to be able to showcase them at the show."
