    the question is do you/would you (i know many here dont actually do the food shopping as living at home) buy fairtrade products?

    At my school we have fairtrade chocolate, and in principle it is such a good idea, but when it comes down to it, to be completely honest when I only have 40p on me I would rather get the better, cheaper cadburys chocolate than the slightly more expensive, fairtrade which is usual only pure chocolate. However should I go shopping for food for home, I would definitely consider buying fairtrade, its only fair.

    We have Fair Trade chocolate at our school too - but no one really buys it. I think people are put off buying Fair Trade chocolate because it is slightly more expensive... and also because they think it is not as good quality, but that's changing.
