Fair Trade stuff

"...Fair trade bananas are flying off Moore Wilson's shelves in Masterton despite Oxfam warning demand needs to pick up or New Zealand may lose the ethical fruit..."

Another piece of 'feel good' marketing.

Of course 'Fair Trade' only works for overseas produce.

The buying practices of the supermarket chains here are conveniently ignored.

The bleeding hearts couldn't give a stuff about NZ growers- who get screwed over just the same as the foreign ones!
