Letter to Nestle HQ, York ...

From Coordinator Fairtrade Falmouth Steering Group ... do not choose this moment of global crisis to exacerbate the inequalities in the cocoa industry

Letters to the CEO Nestle ...

From the Mayor of Glastonbury ... It would cost Nestle less than £0.01 per Kit Kat to maintain the Fairtrade premium to producers

From the Co-ordinator of the Sidmouth Fairtrade Group ... We know the Coronavirus is pushing many farmers to the edge, surely sugar and cocoa farmers need, more than ever the stability that Fairtrade gives them.  

From a member of Fairtrade Devon ... perhaps the most amazing outcome of the Fairtrade system, is the empowerment of the co-op members ...

A member of the SW Fairtrade Network has sent an email  ... Nestlé and Fairtrade have made a much-needed difference to farmers' lives in the past ten years ... so to change things now seems unspeakably short-sighted

A letter to the Falmouth Packet ... many residents in Falmouth and the local area support the principles of Fairtrade

A letter published in the Sidmouth Herald ... The Fairtrade certification scheme guarantees that those who produce the cocoa and sugar cane for our chocolate receive a fair price for their produce
