If you have not seen any of Lucy Bee’s Fairtrade products in the shops then where have you been?  They are everywhere and it’s because the quality is simply unbelievable.  Her relentless effort to have her products all be Fairtrade is fascinating – how many of you really realised what Fairtrade actually means – I mean we all know it’s a good thing but what actually does it mean?  Well listen to the impact Lucy’s products have on the communities that are involved in the production of them! Mind blowing.
