We’re sure you all know about the benefits that Fairtrade brings to the farmers who grow our food in developing countries. Now that the climate is changing, the farmers are finding it more difficult to grow their crops, like bananas, coffee and cocoa beans. They are having to deal with floods and droughts and crop diseases that they haven’t come across before. By having a good price for their crops and a premium (extra money) that they can spend in their communities, the farmers are being helped to overcome these difficulties. That’s why it’s more important than ever for people to buy Fairtrade goods.
