The Bitter Taste Of Tea
Journey Into The World Of Fair TradeStreaming Video - 2009
This program travels to tea estates in Sri Lanka, Kenya, India, and Bangladesh-some traditional, some fair trade-to expose unsafe work environments and labor exploitation. Finding little meaningful difference between fair trade and non-fair trade operations, questions arise: Are fair trade organizations such as the E.U.'s Max Havelaar Foundation being duped by tea growers? Or are growers doing the best they can in a brutal industry and a market that has yet to demand the quantities of fair trade tea that would create meaningful trickle-down profits for their workers? It is left to the viewer to weigh the arguments and decide.
