There is today an ongoing debate about Fair Trade and its consequences. The way to reach an understanding about the producers lives is important if the future will be liberated from the uneven access to the market.

If industrial countries continue to exploit developing countries, there cannot be any fairness in the future. The morals of all actors involved in the market process are therefore important, from the producer to the consumer. Consumers awareness about the products they buy is getting more and more important and the willingness to look at the best of all actors involved is increasing. The purpose of this paper is therefore to discuss and analyze the debate about Fair Trade and look at some differences as well as some similarities between the debaters. (Less)
