In UK is a time for families to gather and obviously a lot of food will be involved. Even though most people are trying to cut back on their shopping bill Christmas is still a prime time for eating some truly amazing food at the dinner table. Whether you love your roast turkey or roast potatoes (or both!) there’s always plenty to eat at Christmas and in most household there is normally plenty to go round the day after also.fairtrade_products-800x500

One thing we should give consideration to though is where a lot of our food comes from, and who has worked hard to provide us with the food we eat. Many food workers in foreign countries such as South America, India and Africa work long hours for very little pay having been exploited this way by western traders and supermarkets for many years.

In recent years the plight of these workers has been made more obvious to many of us and the trend of fairtrade food and drink has become a key issue for many shoppers these days. In the aisles at our local supermarket these days we see more organic and fair trade products ranging from coffee and tea to chocolate and fruits.

It would be nice if more of us in this country thought of the good work being put into providing a better wage and a better standard of living for these communities that work so hard to bring food to our country. There are plenty of situations that could be accompanied by fair trade products such as:
o Fairtrade clothing
o Fairtrade wines
o Fairtrade chocolates
o Fairtrade Coffee and Tea
o Fairtrade Honey and Sugar

The list of Fair trade foods, drinks and products is always growing as more and more industries wake up to the needs of their workers not only for a better wage but for enhancements to their living environment such as new churches, schools and medical centres as well as clean drinking water too.

So in UK consider how your food shopping and other products could help workers in developing countries to benefit from these schemes that are improving their standard of living and by buying fair trade products you’ll be letting the supermarkets that there is a need for these products and the issue of fair treatment for the food industry is a key issue to their customers.
