ZURICH Fairtrade International claims to have found substantial contradictions in the facts presented in a recent Bloomberg news article, which reported that a Fairtrade certified farm in Burkina Faso forced young children to pick cotton and work the land under threat of violence and intimidation.

Fairtrade International, along with Helvetas and Victoria’s Secret have since initiated investigations into the report findings which also alleged the US lingerie brand had then sold underwear made from Fairtrade and organic cotton grown on farms in West Africa that use child labour. However, based on the information it has obtained from its recent field assessment in West Africa, Fairtrade International claims a number of discrepancies cast some doubt on the overall credibility of the news report.
