Fair World Project says No Thanks! to Keurig Green Mountain fair trade challenge grant

Dana Geffner, Executive Director of the Fair World Project, is highly critical of a $10 Million challenge grant to Fair Trade USA...

"Our call to potential funders of FTUSA is let's not unlock this $10 million dollar "investment." Let's instead direct funding to organizations like the Small Producer Symbol whose very mission is to promote small-scale farmer fair trade because labelers like FTUSA failed them. Or let's invest in groups fighting against more NAFTAs and promoting fair trade policies that will allow small-scale farmers to stay on their land, producing food for both their community and northern consumers."
