Well, what do you know?!

Today newspapers reported the decision of Cadburys to use Fairtrade cocoa for its Dairy Milk Bar! And to bring its other brands to Fairtrade as soon as it can.

Tuesday: I announce that I'm giving up non-Fairtrade chocolate.
Wednesday: Cadburys announces its going Fairtrade.

A coincidence? I think not.

Cadburys knew how much profit it would lose. I am an activist!

Lol Liz, well done for your powerful chocolate eating habits!! And in response to your last post I can't keep up with your posts, mind you I have been busy this last week! Keep them coming though, I always read them at some point even if I don't comment :)

That's good news.. If only CDM didn't taste crappy. Still it's better than a Hershey bar!

Katney said...

You get those kinds of results and still you are worried about comments?

Just kidding!

I think I understand this issue.

If you get such quick results I need to get you out campaigning with me ;-)

There, see? The consumer DOES have the power to change things!

I'm eating a bar of Sambirano Grand Cru. I've been eating it since Tuesday. Now that's chocolate.

It isn't Fairtrade, but it is Equitrade. I need to go look up what the difference is, but I suspect not much.

And it isn't from the Ivory Coast, it's Madagascan. No child slave labour.

LOL, Liz--I'm sure Cadbury's saw your post and immediately called a board meeting!

As to your last post, everyone has their own style of blogging--I love the combination of serious and random posts you include here. I do read them all, as I said, but it's easier to leave one comment rather than several. So you can count my comments 5 times:)

I, too, would love to just "wind up" in Rome when I'm 75:)

When you a have a moment of free time over the next few days, I hope you hop over for a visit--I have someone I think George might like to meet:)

I'm feeling I should buy some chocolate to reward myself really, berthddu!

As long as you're promoting Fairtrade, hippy mama ...! And you're a brilliant mother!

I love DCM, jams. I am a millk chocolate person, and strictly speaking that means I'm not a chocoloholic.

True, katney!

It's easy, james: I am the little person.

Just call, cherrypie!

Maybe Equitrade is the US/European equivalent, Jay?

Thank you, Rose.
