Many Fairtrade farmers rely on trade with the UK to feed their families, but needless delays by the Government on rollover trade deals post-Brexit are putting that at risk.
Without a deal, when the transition period ends and the UK leaves the EU on 1 January – just weeks away – exorbitant tariffs will be slapped on Ghanaian farmers' exports, like Fairtrade bananas and cocoa. This will severely impact the ability of farmers to access the UK market, putting their livelihoods at risk.
Global Britain should be putting co-operative values fairness and equality at the heart of our trade strategy post-Brexit: we cannot let Government posturing harm decades of progress by Fairtrade in alleviating poverty throughout the world.
Will you call on the Government now to stop the delays and act to protect the interests of both British consumers and Fairtrade farmers by preventing damaging tariffs being placed on goods from countries like Ghana?
