I like coffee. Very much actually. And here is a film about coffee. But it is not about how much milk you take into your coffee. It is about how little the coffee growers actually get for the tremendous work they do. Most is taken by the Northern companies.
“Trade is more important than Aid,” says one person in the trailer. What is necassary is fair prices. The fair trade movement offers the possibility to buy coffee, chocolate not for the cheapest possible but for a fair price. For a price the producers can live on.
This film is promoting the idea of fair trade and it explains why a new system of trade is so important. I haven’t seen the movie. But I will soon. And then I am going to tell you about it.
