http://www.kitchenpundit.com/ #Fairtrade fortnight 2016- Sit down for breakfast standup for farmers.

Most of the Current generation in my grandma’s village have moved into different careers including our family due to the difficulties we faced earning an every day livelihood and there is much evidence to support this fact by farmers suicides in India. Its not just my personal experience about farmers struggling, there are millions around the world are like that. I feel its my responsibility to support Fairtrade as they support the farmers through trade rather than aid.The farming community should be respected and they deserve a better lifestyle. So I am calling on you all to join with me to support Fairtrade fortnight 2016 breakfast campaign by using Fairtrade ingredients such as fairtrade bananas,fairtrade coffee,fairtrade honey etc…to make your breakfast,“Sit down for breakfast standup for farmers!” #YouEatTheyEat
