Fairtrade #1

Here we are down our local Co-op (thankfully I've got one nearby) and it's 20% off all Fairtrade products for Fairtrade Fortnight. If only I brought my tasting notes from the last time we sampled these at our Co-op meeting on Fairtrade wine. Just get two bottles for now...I'll come back later in the week for some of the chocolate selection and maybe some fairtrade cake. co-opfairtrade
Good report in today's Guardian Saving St.Lucia, about Sainsbury's and Fairtrade bananas. It does make a difference to a fragile economy and it's all been driven by the consumer. If they don't sell then supermarkets will cull those product lines, so we have to continue buying them.
