Keep KitKat Fairtrade!

Nestle has announced that KitKats will no longer be Fairtrade. 

From October it will stop buying from cocoa and sugar farmers in Cote d’Ivoire, Fiji and Malawi on Fairtrade terms. 

That means taking away around £2 million of annual Fairtrade Premium payments, in the middle of a huge health and economic crisis. 

Farmers will be getting less for their hard work and have less control over how they spend their money.

As a member of Dundee Fairtrade Forum, I strongly believe this cannot be right, especially when Nestle turned a profit of over $10 billion last year. 

Please sign the petition to Nestle’s CEO that we want KitKat to stay Fairtrade at - many thanks!
