Starbucks stirred by fair trade

January 30, 2007

A campaign by Ethiopia to get a fair price for its coffee – some of the world’s finest – kicks off in London today as a spokesman for the east African country’s impoverished coffee growers meets Tony Blair.

The meeting will be accompanied by a screening of the film Black Gold – a movie on the global coffee industry – to MPs at Westminster, who will also be addressed by the Ethiopian ambassador to Britain.

From The Guardian, with thanks to green LA girl!
