Having seen the bbc program last night on the chocolate trade, I'm certainly going to think twice before buying chocolate that isn't fairtrade.
non-fairtrade == almost certain child labour* was used in the collection of the beans.

*this isn't child labour in the sense '16 year-olds working part-time after school', it's children as young as 8 working 12 hour days with no prospect of education, and a significant proportion of them being abductees or sold into servitude.

I'm not normally the sort of person who is bothered by this sort of thing; however with the shops currently being filled with 95p eggs, and parents buying them up to satisfy the greed of todays obese youth - it realy highlighted how sickening the extremes of the world economy can be.

A product designed to bring pleasure to the undeserving, produced by oppressing the innocent & defenceless.

yes these fair trade ones look much better. in our more privileged society the equivalent of forced child labour used to be a newspaper round. low pay,early starts, and often much colder than in cocoa bean producing countries. plus the constant threat of predatory pedophiles on britains mean streets. i'm glad I wasn't one of the victims. still, it gives you a good work ethic at a younger age apparently.

Unfortunately its the same with almost everything though that isn't fairtrade - not just the chocolate. Probably little kids climbing trees for bananas etc but how many people stop and think that when they're buying Fyffes?

What I find disgusting is the fact that we have to even have the label 'Fair Trade'. Like that isn't the norm; like it's something special to treat people properly. Sickens you, really. You'd think that the world's governments would just clamp down, and refuse to buy anything that isn't fairtrade. The same argument could be applied to the whole 'free range' thing too. Why isn't it the default?

Yeah, there is stuff still available - although it is valentine's rather than easter. Bought a two bar box for £2, although they tried to get an extra £3.50 for "optional delivery charges".

If you'd taken as much notice of the programme as you have spouting about it, you'd have discovered that Fair Trade choccy is JUST as likely to have come about via child exploitation as 'standard' stuff - its too easy to break the supply chain. You might as well buy cheapo stuff and send the difference in cash to a child charity.

Some companies like Divine and Café Direct are a lot more hands on and provide a lot more benefit to communities than some of the more cynical companies calling themselves fairtrade.

+ 1, nestle and cadburys have introduced fair-trade, but yes Divine is more hands on with their fair trade. Cadburys and Nestle is large scale. In the programme the first kids were trafficked, the rest was by parents force and they probably did not mind doing it. Education preferred obviously but they probably realise their parents don't have the money, and this is their life. If Cadburys and Nestle did not do this the Egg deals on here would be voted cold into oblivion for being priced at £3 and "this country has gone to the dogs" comments would ensue.

This is how life works, people live a relatively basic life compared to us for us to have the lives we live.

In an Ideal World I agree, but we don't live in one.
Many Governments collude in child labour and are
extremely corrupt.
