Reviving the spirit of Christmas in a year as intense as 2020 makes us think more than ever about the importance of fair trade, collaboration and solidarity. More than significant reasons why this year we were especially excited to receive the proposal from Patricia Marco, from the Department of Fair Trade Citizen Shops of Oxfam Intermón, to participate with a recipe from our chef Emmanuelle Malibert in the Christmas Catalog.

Revive Christmas, Fair Trade Catalog 2020 is a wonderful repertoire of products that by choosing them for personal consumption and gifts this holiday season, connects thousands of buyers with thousands of other producers who are fairly remunerated, thus expanding the ties that contribute to the welfare of people.

Fashion, cosmetics, decoration, food and much more, all produced and marketed in a sustainable and fair way.
At Oxfam Intermón they work every day to reduce social and economic inequalities in the world.
Let’s build a future without poverty.
