Fair amount of cof­fee

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Dunedin and Welling­ton coun­cils were the first to go fair trade in 2009.

Three Kings res­i­dent Sam Drumm helped per­suade Auck­land Coun­cil to switch to fair trade prod­ucts through his role as chair­man of the Fair Trade Auck­land City Trust three years later.

Since then the coun­cil has used 2 mil­lion cups of fair trade cof­fee from 10,905kg of beans and 1430kg of in­stant cof­fee.

Coun­cil staff have con­sumed nearly 2800kg of fair trade hot choco­late and used more than 1.2 mil­lion fair trade tea bags.
