Dunkin' Donuts, the world¹s largest coffee and baked goods chain, has announced plans to become the first national brand to sell espresso
beverages made exclusively with Fair Trade coffee. Beans for all Dunkin Donuts espresso beverages, including cappuccino and latte, will be
certified through TransFair USA, which is the only independent certifier of Fair Trade products in the U.S. The Fair Trade model guarantees
farmers a price of .26 per pound for coffee, enabling them to make a sustainable living. Dunkin' Donuts espresso line of beverages will be introduced in stores beginning in September. Fair Trade espresso coffee is expected to represent approximately two percent of total Dunkin' Donuts coffee bean purchases. The release of this news comes shortly before World Fair Trade Day, an international day of education and rallies to promote fair trade for farmers everywhere. Unfortunately Dunkin¹ Donuts, like Starbucks is still serving up coffee beverages tainted with Monsanto's recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone, banned in every industrialized country except for the US.
