Fairtrade profits 'not benefiting the poor'

A new study says profits from Fairtrade products are not helping the poorest farm workers in Uganda and Ethiopia.

    A new report says the Fairtrade movement is not benefiting the people it was set up to protect. 
     
    The movement is supposed to help workers in developing countries by ensuring they get proper pay.
     
    But that is not always the case, especially in Africa.
