The numbers of numbers of people willing to pay a premium price for what they believe is an 'ethical' product has soared in recent years (stock image)

A real “Fairtrade” label from Waitrose

The “Fairtrade” logo is normally seen as an assurance that producers of items in poorer countries are fairly treated and well paid for the goods that they produce.

Sadly, unscrupulous crooks have started putting the “Fairtrade” logo onto their very non-fairtrade goods.

If you spot any of these items on the streets, it would be helpful if you point it out to Trading Standards officers, or the Police Fraud Line as soon as possible.

The concept of “Fairtrade” is to help those in real need, not to help rich crooks.
