My daughter is doing a global challenge on Russia for her beaver scouts badge. We have searched all over the internet to no avail. Can you please tell me the countryside code for Russia also what fair trade products do Russia produce?
Asked by Gemma
Fair trade as social movement in Russia is almost non-existent and consists, on the one hand, of few separate active workers and small groups, and on the other is presented by some manufacturers (for example Clipper, Qi-Teas )
I had never seen any fair trade labels on any locally produced item bought in Russia.
Could it be explained by the fact that Russia is not considering itself as a third world producer! It definitely doesn't look like one. (Your daughter will confirm it after the visit ))))
Having said that, if you take a look at the basic list of products usually covered by fair trade initiative among coffee, tea, bananas, chocolate, rice, cocoa, honey, clap, wine, fresh fruit, spices....I can only think of fresh fruits, honey and spices which could be covered by the program.
P.S. Unfortunately, the country code of Russian Federation is impossible to find (if any). I'll add it if I find it.
