GLOBAL CITIZEN: Here’s Why KitKat Can’t Say ‘Black Lives Matter’ While Abandoning Fairtrade

Karen Lunde October 5, 2020

After Nestlé ditched Fairtrade this summer, we’re saying enough is enough.

Why Global Citizens Should Care
The UN’s Global Goal 8 for decent work targets economic growth where everybody gets the benefits of entrepreneurship and innovation. That’s always been the aim of Fairtrade too, ensuring producers in poorer countries get a fair deal from powerful international conglomerates. But as KitKat scraps its partnership with Fairtrade, that mission is under threat. Take action to fight extreme poverty and stand for economic empowerment for everyone.
