Title

Going beyond "fair trade" labels to ensure ethical coffee and tea sourcing

Summary

Looking into the heart of Africa, in cooperation with farms and coffee sources, I have discovered some unique issues with "fair trade" labels in terms of ethical producing and sourcing of coffee, tea, and other signature food products. This is how to better read the "fair trade" label to ensure that your organic farmer in a remote country is receiving the benefit of your business, and can redistribute the funds of that investment into natural preservation.
