Move by UK supermarkets threatens to bring Fairtrade crashing down

Tesco is to join Sainsbury’s in changing the branding of some ‘fairly traded’ productsWhen four Sainsbury’s executives met farmers from some of Africa’s biggest tea-growing co-operatives in a hotel in Nairobi last month it should have been a mutual celebration of Fairtrade, the gold standard of ethical trading and the world’s most trusted and best-known food certification scheme.But instead of backslapping at the Pride hotel, the world’s largest retailer of Fairtrade products precipitated the greatest crisis in the scheme’s 25-year history by telling the 13 major tea groups and their 228,000 co-operative members that it intended to drop the globally known Fairtrade mark for their produce, and replace it with the phrase “fairly traded”.

England’s Demarai Gray steps from bench to seize centre stage

After a season on the periphery at Leicester the forward has made an impact for England in the European Under-21 ChampionshipIt seemed Demarai Gray had been waiting to answer the question for some time. Clutching the boots which had just helped England reach the semi-finals of the European Under-21 Championship on Thursday night for the first time in four attempts, the forward who learned his trade in the junior section of Cadbury Athletic – the non-league club in Birmingham’s south-western suburbs, affiliated to the world-famous confectioners, that produced Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge – twiddled his headphones in his hands and thought for a second.“It is all about opportunities,” he finally replied when asked about the key to his development. “Playing at first-team level is how you progress the best. You learn about the real game. Managers have to trust you and give you a chance. If they do, we will have more English talent coming on show.” Continue reading...

KitKat v Kvikk Lunsj: which four-fingered chocolate bar tastes best?

Nestlé has been trying to trademark KitKat’s shape – but is its taste equally distinctive? We put it and its doppelganger to the testSay what you like about Nestlé, but it is certainly dogged. This week, the court of appeal rejected its attempt to register KitKat’s four-finger shape as a UK trademark, but that it is just the latest stage in 11 years of Europe-wide KitKat legal wrangling between the Swiss food manufacturer and one of its competitors, Cadbury.

KitKat foiled again in attempt to trademark four-fingered bar's shape

Court of appeal rules against Nestlé in its protracted battle with Cadbury over whether format should be protected by lawIt’s enough to make anyone need a sit-down with a cup of tea and a four-fingered chocolate wafer biscuit. The confectionery multinational Nestlé has lost the latest round of its long-running battle with rivals Cadbury to trademark the shape of the KitKat bar in the UK.

The National Trust's egg hunters crack on despite controversy

The organisation was criticised for omitting the word ‘Easter’ from holiday events, but young chocolate-seekers don’t seem to careThe gates of Prior Park Landscape Garden in Bath opened at 10am sharp. Within an hour, four-year-old Dylan and older sister Ciara were happily chomping on chocolate bunnies, having successfully completed an egg hunt. “This is our third hunt this week,” said Ciara, 10. “The others were in our garden. We’re going home to relax now. This one was tough.” Over the Easter weekend hundreds of children will complete this trail and scores of others at National Trust parks, gardens and houses across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, most blissfully unaware of the furore that preceded them.

No yolk: Cadbury and National Trust say Easter egg row is nonsense

Chocolatier and charity say there are many references to Easter in their egg hunt marketing after Theresa May weighs in to rowFor many, it was a storm in an egg cup. But the supposed removal by Cadbury and the National Trust of references to Easter from material promoting egg hunts across the country was enough to divert the prime minister’s attention from international diplomacy and trade to garishly-wrapped confectionery.It was “absolutely ridiculous”, Theresa May said in Amman, en route for Saudi Arabia, that the National Trust had – as a Church of England spokesman put it – “airbrushed faith from Easter”. And the prime minister laid out her credentials on the subject: “I’m not just a vicar’s daughter, I’m a member of the National Trust as well,” she said. “I don’t know what they are thinking about, frankly.” Continue reading...

Easter eggs aren’t even Christian – so why squabble over them? | Peter Ormerod

Everyone can buy into a triumph of life over death, unless they’re Theresa May, Nigel Farage or the archbishop of YorkYou know the problem with Easter? It’s just not commercial enough. If only there were more corporations trying to make money out if it. The word Easter should be associated with money-making activity wherever possible. After all, we’re a Christian country, right?That at least appears to be the logic of the archbishop of York. He’s furious with Cadbury for removing the word Easter from a hunt for chocolate eggs. It’s “tantamount to spitting on the grave” of the company’s Quaker founder, John Sentamu says. Despite a descendant of Cadbury pointing out that it was unlikely he was spinning in said grave, given that as a Quaker, he didn’t celebrate Easter, Theresa May weighed in to add that the company is being “absolutely ridiculous”. And she should know: she’s a vicar’s daughter and a National Trust member who also happens to be the prime minister. Continue reading...
