Fair-trade shopping at Tesco

On Tuesday 19th March, Moles went on a village walk to Tesco in Durrington.

We were on the hunt for fair-trade products. We had been learning about fair-trade this term as part of our Geography topic so we decided we would go out into the local community and find some fair-trade products of our own.

We had a clipboard with a table to fill in. The products we had to find were: coffee, tea, cocoa, honey, bananas, pineapples, fruit juice and a chocolate bar.

We found out that most of the time the fair-trade item was a lot more expensive than the non-fair-trade product.

However, Durrington Tesco was not very big so we didn’t have a lot of different products to compare it to.
