Not a blog about the science or practice of travel through books, but perhaps rather about science, practice and travel through books.

Fairtrade in Bergen?

FairtradeBT wrote about our (SAIH’s) little Max Havelaar store-campaign yesterday: Meny kåret som bergensmester i rettferdig handel. Max Havelaar is part of the international Fairtrade-system. Not surprisingly, the stores with the largest selections of products, also were best at including Max Havelaar – with Meny at the top of the list. Most of the lowprice-stores had one or two Max Havelaar-products, and coffee were the most common product to find. As the coffee-prices fluctute very much, it’s good to see the increasing avaibility of fairtraded coffee – where the farmers get a fixed price. Juice, tea and bananas were also found at many stores. Hopefully we’ll see more of the less common products, rice and chocolate, coming soon. A bit surprising was the fact that many of the employers in the stores hadn’t even heard of the Max Havelaar-system.

For specially interested, I’ve uploded the results here
