Oscar Ponce Salazar – Fairtrade coffee producer

One of the coffee growers for Fairtrade is making a special visit to Devon for Fairtrade Fortnight. In his honour, I have painted his portrait in Fairtrade coffee – one portrait in a series of Fairtrade Champions.

This is Mr Oscar Ponce Salazar, a Fairtrade Coffee producer from Peru.  During his time with us in Devon, Oscar will be engaging with schools, volunteers, community groups and flagship employers.  See Oscar’s full programme of activites.
