    Its too bad they dont pay the farmers as they imply in the vid and would clearly like to have you believe. They pay a middle man who may or may not pass the money along to the actual farmers.

    Re: INTERESTING VID...

    Most times the growers form a co op to process and sell the coffee.

    They then need a decent representative to sell the coffee at a decent price in order to cut the "middle man" out and have more of that money for them selfs.

    I think the biggest problem is that the trading price for coffee is set in the US by people that only have interest in prifit$.

    UNFAIR TRADING if you ask me... :(

    FLO will only certify cooperatives, not individual farmers. That is where cooperatives sprung up from.

    Does the FTO only govern the selling price or are they responsable for workers conditions and pay also?

    Dunno too much Luke

    That bit of info came from God in a Cup which Im about half way through. Read that bit yesterday and raised my eyebrow as well...

    Possibly governance of selling price is intended to do as you say, but as mentioned I only know a tiny amount.

    FTOs agreement is with the middleman, not the farmers. What the middleman pays the farmers for the beans is determined by the middleman, not FTO. Notice that in all their ads they dont claim to pay the farmer more for their beans/products. They heavily imply it, but they never come right out and claim it. They know that if they did theyd get their a$$e$ sued off, and rightfully so!

    IMO its all little more than a marketing ploy.

    Thanks Javaphile,

    It is a huge labyrinth as G in a C touches on in small detail.

    And that is just the coffee industry, not including FT and FLO *::)
