Over recent years there has been much debate over unfair trade practices that take advantage of the poverty and vulnerability of primary producers and artisans, especially in developing countries. By buying fair trade goods we can help to empower people who are at risk of such exploitation. Rather than the majority of the profit going into the pockets of a middle man, fair trade organisations enable primary producers and craftspeople to be paid a fair amount of money for their labours, thus enabling them to break the cycle of poverty and provide for their families in a dignified way.
