Nick Hewer – host of Channel 4’s long-running quiz show Countdown and former advisor to Lord Alan Sugar on BBC’s The Apprentice – has been confirmed as the host of the 2019 South West Fair Trade Business Awards.

Mr. Hewer, who is a patron of The Fairtrade Foundation, has visited the Windward Islands to meet and interview Fairtrade banana workers. Speaking at a Fairtrade conference in October 2018, Hewer commented:

“For my part, I firmly believe that business and Fairtrade together have the power to make the world a fairer and therefore a better place. It has to be right that all of us work together to find a way to make business work for everyone – from the farmer in the field right through to the boardroom and ultimately the consumer.”

Also speaking on the day will be LJ Loftus, Head of Supply Chain Management at The Fairtrade Foundation.

The Awards will be taking place at Arnos Vale Cemetery, a magnificent Victorian heritage site in Bristol, on Friday 8th March 2019. Businesses can find more information and enter for free until the end of January by visiting the Awards Page. All successful entrants will receive a free ticket to the ceremony.
