Responsible Capitalism? New FairTrade Figures Show Business Is Changing for good

Ann Mullaney, Fairtrade representative in Hayes, West London, shares some encouraging information echoing the statement from Harriet Lamb, Fairtrade Executive Director:  ‘We believe that responsible businesses are those who don’t just tackle the company bonuses at the top – but take steps to ensure a fairer deal for the workers and farmers at the bottom of the supply chain too. Forward-thinking companies are showing leadership in committing to Fairtrade, realising that  they need to invest in smallholders, developing better, longer-term relationships.
