Make Trade Fair: Sugar Coated Profits

Writing about web page

Sugar giant, British Sugar made profits of more than £175 million pounds this year. It makes these huge profits from an EU arrangement that keeps almost all African sugar out of European markets and contributes to sugar dumping. While the government is lavishing loads on big companies like British Sugar, small-scale farmers around the world are struggling to survive.
This unfair system costs you money, too. Not only in the tax you pay the government for subsidies but also because the lack of competition means you pay more for your sugar. British Sugar is doing everything it can to stop the reforms and keep more efficient African farmers from lifting themselves out of poverty. Ask the government to do everything in their power to change this.

The 'Make Trade Fair' is running a campaign to push for sugar industry reform. All you have to do is click on the link and the site and send an email to Margaret Becker via the website.

On a design note, I love this site for combining style and substance beautifully.
