Nestle have announced KitKats will no longer be Fairtrade. From October they will stop buying from cocoa and sugar farmers in Cote d’Ivoire, Fiji and Malawi on Fairtrade terms. That means ripping away around £2 million of annual Fairtrade Premium payments, in the middle of a huge health and economic crisis. Farmers will be getting less for their hard work and have less control over how they spend their money.
This can’t be right, especially when Nestle turned a profit of over $10 billion last year. Please join me telling Nestle’s CEO that we want KitKat to stay Fairtrade.
