M & S coffee goes Fairtrade

High street retailer Marks & Spencer have switched to using 100% Fairtrade coffee in their "Café Revive" coffee shops. This is another big step forward for the Fairtrade movement.

According to the BBC, this move alone will roughly double the amount of Fairtrade coffee on sale in Britain's coffee shops. And the move is especially impressive considering there has been no rise in the retail price of the coffee as a result of the switch.

Hats off to M & S for taking this very significant step, and to the Fairtrade Foundation, and all the others who lobbied for this change. Well done!
