But only Maya Gold is fairtrade - the rest are just organic. Green and Black's are owned by Cadbury now.
All Co-op chocolate is fairtrade (and is good stuff too)

So are green and black's no longer fairtrade? I thought Cadbury had guaranteed that they were going to continue the fairtrade practice for G&B?

cadbury the MNer or Cadbury the chocolate empire? Grin

So does this mean I can now get cut price G&B from their factory shop?

Only for Maya Gold, Caligula. From the article, it's only ever been MG that's been fairtrade (I think) anyway. All still organic though.

What an interesting read - it would make a great plot for a novel; discovering the old plantation, being the 5th white person to see it. I like it

Apparently your tetth are down to genes, fathers genes, my childs teeth are terrible, i can now blame the Scottish Father.

If you have two children and look after them exactly the same and one gets bad teeth,, well hmmmmmm, it must bwe the scots.

( also terrible for a child with a heart condition so he is in hospital soon for op)
