Worth watching.

The Fairtrade project will initially focus on tracking a selection of Fair Trade goods imported into the UK by following their trail back to source, evaluating the value of Fair Trade to both producing and importing entities, assessing the existing legal framework and examining to what extent Fair Trade succeeds in strengthening the capabilities of disadvantaged groups at each change of ownership. A subsequent study is planned extending to products imported into other consuming countries.

I will be following this.

I just wanted to drop you a note letting you know that I am finding your blog very thought provoking. I’m a fellow UM alum and finding Zingerman’s opened my eyes to a whole new world of food. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for your encouragement, Aimee! Since as yet this blog is only a hobby I don’t post as often as I would like to. I hope to be much more involved here starting in September.
