Why FairTrade?
International trade may seem a remote issue, but when commodity prices fall dramatically it has a catastrophic impact on the lives of millions of small scale producers, forcing many into crippling debt and countless others to lose their land and their homes.
Fairtrade contributes to the alleviation of this poverty through a system of trade that allows producers in the developing world access to our markets. This alternative trade builds on the producers' skills and enables communities to play an active role in their own development, while at the same time satisfying our consumer demands.
Fairtrade "humanises" the trade process - making the producer-consumer chain as short as possible so that consumers become aware of the culture, identity and conditions in which producers live.

In January 2001 the bereaved families and survivors of the Dublin bombings of 1 December 1972 and 20 January 1973 joined with those of 1974 and amalgamated into a united organisation demanding to know the truth as to how and why all their loved ones were cruelly murdered and so many were maimed.
