Still think that it is a good obvious way to get more people "aware" of behind the scenes. It is so easy to be blinded and not know the reality of growers, all we know is a nice cup of coffee.
Get more people aware and participate, I think it is a way to start, yet, eventually people might get to the bottom line.

FairTrade certification gives consumers the confidence they need to trust the growers get a fair price. Otherwise they just have to take Supreme's word for it. Without third party certification, buyer beware!

FairTrade just another bully boy corporation that is really only interested in its own empire and profits.
Small family farmers that are strugling to feed their families are crushed by this giant world wide corporation.
Just another BS organisation in a BS world and every westener falls for it hook line and sinker.
The only thing that changes is the larger farms have to pay for their licence to get certification to be allowed to sell to the local markets for overseas trade. The child slavery and child workers still continues it is such an hypocrasy. A good idea on paper but that is where it should stay on some beuracrats desk just to stand his coffee on!
