Quiz Time & Fairtrade Games


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. Too many farmers in the developing world have to contend with fluctuating prices that may not even cover what it costs to produce their crop. There are nine questions on this topic.

The Fairtrade labelling network is working with 500 producer groups and over 400 traders in 58 countries, with benefits reaching five million people.

We hope that this quiz will encourage you to promote Fairtrade in your area.
