Posted May 3rd 2012

A new poll by Probe Research Inc. indicates that nearly two-thirds (64%) of Manitobans said they would be inclined to purchase fair trade goods, even if they cost more than competing products.

The poll, which surveyed 1,000 Manitobans on their views on Fair Trade, also indicated that Manitobans want to see Fair Trade products more widely available in our restaurants (52%) and workplaces (44%). It also found that also half (47%) say they purchase Fair Trade goods on at least a monthly (31%) or weekly (16%) basis.

MCIC announced these results on May 3, 2012 at Elements – The Restaurant, which serves Fair Trade and locally-sourced food.
