24 Fair Trade Talking points Q: What is fair trade? A: Fair trade is a movement, which aims to empower small-scale producers and improve their living conditions. By using fair trade principles, consumers, producers and businesses can build trading relationships that are good for people and planet.

25 Q: Does fair trade help farmers? A: Yes. By ensuring they always receive a price that covers the cost of production – whatever the market. Fair trade also provides farmers with funds to invest in community projects like local businesses and health or sanitation. For hired labour, fair trade means decent pay and safe working conditions.

26 Q: Why does campus have fair trade products? A: It has been designated a Fair Trade campus because of the commitment that students and staff have made to the fair trade movement. We stock Fairtrade coffee, tea and chocolate in the cafeterias and cafes. In fact, 100% of the coffee is Fairtrade.

27 Q: How can I be sure that the benefits reach farmers? A: If a product has the Fairtrade logo on the packet, then farmers and buyers have been working within the Fairtrade International system. All stakeholders will have been audited by a 3rd party.
