The fair trade consumer of 2014
An increasing number of large institutions make the choice for the consumer and buys fair trade - the consumer thus no longer makes this choice him- or herself.

Fair trade experts from Denmark and abroad will discuss this at the seminar 'The end of Fair Trade as we know it'?
