Fairtrade goods given backing

Have your say

SHEFFIELD based Euro MP Linda McAvan is backing Fairtrade Fortnight which promotes produce for which workers receive a decent wage.

The Labour MEP, who represents Yorkshire and the Humber, is asking her followers on Twitter and Facebook to upload photos of their favourite Fairtrade produce - ranging from coffee and chocolate to shoes. Linda chairs the Fairtrade Working Group in the European Parliament.
