    Default Fair Trade Products

    Hello! Does anyone know where I may be able to purchase Fair Trade products in the Punta Cana area? I'm most interested in cocoa products or coffee, but really I'm looking to find a vendor who carries Fair Trade goods in general.

    Any leads would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

    I don't know if you are looking for a one time purchase or to purchase on a regular basis. It's not in Punta Cana, but you might want to check out the website for Cabarete Coffee in Cabarete - they work with a women's cooperative to purchase cocoa. If you're looking for a regular supplier, maybe it's worth getting in touch with them.

    Not sure what you mean by "fair trade". Never understood that concept. Fair to who?

    Fair trade means a fair price to the producer, not the middleman or the supermarket.
