Not saying it should make any difference to what you do or buy, just sharing information. If I'm honest buying fair-trade products is usually about as far as I go in that respect, unless I actually know the people involved personally. Well the exceptionally wide margin would serve the employee-owners rather than the customers... Uh oh. I didn't even think: it's in The South! This is starting to sound more like a Church model instead of a business model. I wonder if there are enough followers to maintain it? At least a few of them around here! I can't elaborate or be factual without resorting to political insight. Farewell thread!
