8  If Nestlé with 283,000 workers made US$15 billion from trade in 2008 while Uganda with a population of 27.7 million lost US$1.29 billion: ◦ How fair do you think the rules of trade are? ◦ Do you think that the 80 cents per pound of coffee beans paid by Nestlé is enough?

9  You can choose fairtrade label products which come from LEDC’s such as Uganda.  Instead of buying a product such as coffee from Nestlé you can buy a fairtrade brand.  In Mbale, fairtrade coffee comes from Gumutindo and can be bought in the UK from Cafédirect or Oxfam.

10  What is fairtrade and how does it work?  What are the benefits of fairtrade for the coffee farmers of Gumutindo – how are the 3034 Gumutindo farmers better off than the 90,000 farmers who sell to Nestlé?  Should the World Trade Organisation set rules that makes all trade fair? Explain your answer.
