Will the ends justify the means in offshoring transparency?


Oh BTW a Fair Trade banana grower is represented by FINE and Fair Trade bodies, all of whom have signed up to free trade (i.e. the can't pledge not buy from abroad). Also the banana grower has to prove his supply chain is ethical at every step, including rules on wages, human rights, and the right to join a trade union. I do not think the MR industry would win an ethics competition with a Fair Trade banana grower (and before anybody shouts, yes lots of individual companies would, but not the industry as a whole)
