Rose Mensah – fair trade inspiration

Rose Mensah

Rose Mensah, a cocoa bean farmer from Ghana came to Wellington to kick off Fair Trade Fortnight and share her story about how being in a fair trade co-op benefit’s her community.
Hearing her story lead me to ask Wellington fair trade stalwarts, Christian from Trade Aid , Matt and Kate from All Good Bananas and Rochelle from Wellington Chocolate Factory about the effects on their suppliers and their products from committing their businesses to being fair trade.
I also chat to Pravin Sawmy of Fairtrade New Zealand about NZ’s astounding growth in Fair trade products is in just 9 years.
