Sainsbury’s: Fairtrade for people or for profits?

Sainsbury’s claims to be the “the world’s largest retailer of Fairtrade products” and boasts of their commitment to “sourcing with integrity”.  According to Sainsbury’s: “Consumers care about the provenance of the goods they buy and the integrity of the companies they spend their money with.”

Yet Sainsbury’s refuse to respond to customer demands to end trade with companies that export agricultural produce from Israel’s illegal settlement farms, as The Co-operative Group has done.

On 9th February last year, a worldwide campaign was launched in response to the call from Palestine to expose and end the complicity of Israeli agricultural export corporations in Israel’s ongoing violations of international law and Palestinian human rights.
