Ahmed Fair Trade

  1. 1. Fair Trade: Chocolate Fair Trade: A term used to describe a social-responsibility movement demanding that farmers receive fair prices for their products. Advantages of fair trade products; Much of the UK’s cocoa comes from Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire. Most of theses farmer get taken advantage of and are given an unfair deal. This means they have to live and work in substandard living conditions. The problem is most of theses companies are just out there to make a profit. The farmers have so little authority the companies will simply move on so they have to play by the corporations rules. Fortunately some companies like Divine are there trying to help out the farmers by giving them a fair deal. This does mean the product has to be slightly more expensive but paying that little bit extra does have some advantages. For example; it gives the farmer more money to improve their lifestyle; it is ethical and involves no cheap or child labour so the children can go to school and not be denied the right to an education; it tackles poverty by creating job and giving the working man a higher wage.
