Re: Fairtrade

The whole concept of "Fairtrade" is fraught with conundrums ...There is an automatic assumption that Fairtrade is required because of monopsonistic buyers, whereas in fact the low price is caused by oversupply. To encourage greater supply by giving a selection of producers more money makes the prob...

Re: Fairtrade

The Co-op is the only supermarket Tyrrell's will deal with, their other outlets being small village shops ... And Waitrose. But that doesn't mean that other supermarkets don't sell them. I know they managed to get Tesco to agree to stop selling their crisps, after lengthy discussions, but "Tesco do...

Re: Fairtrade

Unfortunately people can use any English words as long as they don't misuse a trade mark. But surely it's an offence under the Trade Descriptions Act to make false or misleading statements about a product. And that includes "the use of any conformity mark, or of any imitation thereof likely to dece...

Re: Fairtrade

The Tyrrell's pack has a very small slogan at the bottom, back of the pack; 'Fair trade for our family farms'; quite different, and they are very nice crisps, especially the Lightly Salted... Hmmm. I still think they're wrong to use the words "fair trade" on their crisp packets, because they do hav...

Re: Countries I've visited.
