The Global Ambassadors prepared and served chocolate milkshake to all of the children at school. They explained that the milkshake was made using fair trade chocolate.
Fair trade is a way of buying and selling products that allows the farmers to be paid a fair price for their produce, and have better working conditions.
Trade is 'unfair' when farmers receive very low income and have poor conditions while the companies that sell their products make lots of money from them.
The Fairtrade Mark was introduced in 1994; it is a symbol awarded to products that are sold under certain fair-trading conditions.
