We often think of Fair Trade as a label that applies only to developing countries.
I guess we could be wrong.
Emily Dugan (The Independent) writes that Low prices force farmers to give up on cauliflowers.
If her facts are accurate farmers in the UK get paid only half the price that it costs them to grow these vegetables which are one of my favorite staples. I love a nice Cauliflower Gratin (Gratin de Chou-Fleur in French).
Chocolate & Zucchini just offered a Gratin de Chou-Fleur recipe.
So will we soon be able to get some of our homegrown food only under a Fair Price
I heard recently that one of my other fav foods with pate and the like, Cornichons, were in danger of becoming a 'made in India' product.
Have you heard of any other food items that cost farmers rather than make money for them?
