Fair Trade Coffee

Fair Trade Coffee

Coffee is the second most traded commodity after oil. Which makes it one of the most popular drinks worldwide.

It first grew in Northeast Africa, Ethiopia. It is now grown in more than 65 countries around the globe.

Between 1999 to 2003, the price of coffee has decreased. Coffee was paid $US. 0.45 per pound. which sent out thousand of farmers out of business.

In the past recent years the price of coffee has been increased to $0.25, if the market price is higher, farmers will recieve the same anount as the market price.

Fair trade coffee is good quality coffee and it pays the producers (farmers) the price they deserve for their hard work and it helps communities. Good quality coffee people get to enjoy and farmers getting paid fairly. Everyone wins!

I wonder what the difference is between fair trade and non-fair trade coffee?

I wonder why fair trade is called "fair", when we have to pay higher prices?

Advantages

Disadvantages

~ It's a higher cost.~ Multinational companies such as Starbucks, Kraft, Nestle help more than how the fair trade company does to help the producers.

~ Help a struggling farmer ~ High quality coffee (organic)

My family would often buy the nescafe brand from Nestle. Which is a fair trade product. so i would say my family contributes to buying fair trade coffee.
