Global Fair Trade
In 1994 £2.75 million worth of Fairtrade products were sold in the UK; in 2006 annual sales reached £290 million.
20% of the roast and ground coffee market is now Fairtrade certified, as is 5% of overall coffee sales.
Fairtrade bananas now account for 8% of the total UK banana market.
As a result of these sales, over 1 million farmers and workers throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia
currently work under Fairtrade conditions, which leads to benefits for an estimated 5 million people.
Production/export volumes and values for agricultural production are available from:
