Fair Trade Certification
No, there’s no chocolate in this calendar, but there is a very interesting podcast about Fair Trade by Alex Nicholls. Fair Trade is today the most significant example of a social enterprise entering mainstream markets. The Fair Trade model has had an influence beyond its own particular markets by playing an important role both specifically in establishing the ‘ethical consumer’ as a viable market segment and in exposing exploitation across mainstream supply chains to the public more generally. Fair Trade has its roots in a range of social movements that campaigned for trade justice, often within a strong religious (Christian) framework.
