• Some International Food Co-operatives


India: The KASAM (Kandhamal Apex Spices Association for Marketing) Co-operative

was set up to trade fairly with, and help to educate, the Kuttia Kondh tribe, who have, for some time, grown and exported high quality organic turmeric. The turmeric has now been @28 the Dutch equivalent of the British Soil Association. Trading turmeric is vital to the welfare of more than 12,000 subsistence farmers in a region where the average family plot is only around one third of a hectare. The Khandamal region of Orissa, in Eastern India, is the poorest region of the second poorest state of India (after Bihar). The high quality, sun dried turmeric is processed and graded within a co-op-owned factory, and is exported worldwide. The original co-operative expanded rapidly to include further items, and is now known as
The Tribal Co-operative Marketing Development Federation of India, TRIFED.
The Federation of Tibetan Co-operatives in India has similar objectives

    365 Ways to Drive a Liberal Crazy

    No 218:

    On being served Fair Trade coffee, take a sip, then spit it out in horror and disgust. Gag: "My God! This is Fair Trade! Don't you know I never do Fair Trade stuff? Fair Trade is evil." Explain the reason for your principled objection: by overpaying certain favored suppliers, Fair Trade sends out incorrect price signals that distort the market. If coffee prices are low, it's not a sign that well-meaning liberals should be emotionally blackmailed into paying more; it's a sign of over supply which—were the market allowed to work correctly—would send a signal to farmers to diversify their portfolio of crops

    And a Joke on The Perils of Food ....

    A Doctor was addressing a large audience in Brisbane .
    'The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here years ago. Red meat is awful. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG.
    High fat diets can be disastrous and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water. However, there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all have eaten, or will eat it. Can anyone
    here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?'
    After several seconds of quiet a 75-year-old man in the front row raised his hand and softly said, 'Wedding Cake.'
