  Eat 'fairtrade' chocolate, says Cat Deeley
Updated 05 March 2002, 17.07

TV presenter Cat Deeley is urging chocolate lovers to get their sweet fix by eating 'fairtrade' choccie bars.

Fairtrade products help farmers in poorer countries by making sure they get more of the money we spend.

In the UK we spend 3.6 billion on chocolate each year - that's a mouth-munching 1.20 each every week!

But the farmers who grow the cocoa in chocolate get only a tiny amount of this.

Most is kept by the big firms which make the chocolate.

Fairer deal for famers

Fairtrade is an organisation with strict rules ensuring that farmers get more money than normal.

Fairtrade chocolate bars include Dubble and Divine - as well as other products like coffee and bananas.

Cat Deeley supports what they do.

She says: "It's a two-way deal. The people who produced the products you enjoy get a fairer deal for their hard work. What could be more simple?"
