Only looking at this now - I have material about fair trade as a
marketing ploy in general from the Food Co-op and also recently had a v.
interesting conversation with an ex-Bewleys manager who said all fair
trade in the coffee market is bullshit since it goes through the London
commodities exchange once it gets to a certain size..
Will try and do something which is a bit more solid than... this guy I
know told me ;-)
