IKnowFoods Principle Investigator, Professor Bob Doherty’s article on food security and Fairtrade: It’s not a very merry Christmas for Fairtrade chocolate, has been published in The Conversation. It was the most read article in the first week of December, creating a lot of discussion around the issue, which is great news.
