stall will be in display in the hall selling Fairtrade products
such as Cafedirect (the seventh biggest selling coffee on
the market). Fairtrade products guarantee that growers of
coffee, beans, coca, tea etc will receive a fair price for
their crops. They also pay a 'social premium' which goes
to the coffee growers' co-operative to spend on the needs
of the community and make credit avaiable for growers.
Buying coffee, tea choclate
etc from Fraitrade ensures that the coffee growers are paid
a fair price for their products. Non - fairtrade coffee
buyers pay such a low price to the growers that in many
cases it is less than the coffee to produce.
Fairtrade allows money to
be invested in the community on safer water, healthcare
