The Fairtrade Foundation has recently started a new campaign called 'Show Your Hand: Make Trade Fair'.
The campaign addresses the issue of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, a controversial trade deal between the EU and USA. Due to the lack of transparency over the negotiations it is very hard to know what impact the trade deal would have on smallholder farmers around the world.
The Forum has put together valuable background information to the Foundation's campaign, which you can access here. The document addresses the concerns about TTIP and includes case studies on Fairtrade bananas, coffee, sugar and flowers in Kenya.
