Fair Trade Treat
One of the world’s top-selling chocolate makers, Cadbury, is set to become a fair trade dealer later this year, giving a boost to thousands of cocoa farmers in Africa.
Fair trade products try to make sure farmers from poorer countries get the best price for their goods.
Cadbury said getting fair trade status for its chocolate would triple the amount of fair trade cocoa it gets from Ghana – a country in Africa – to about 15,000 tons a year.
Last year, hundreds of millions of dollars were spent on fair trade products like coffee, bananas and sugar.
