The Olive Branch sells a wide variety of fairly traded goods (food and non-food) plus wholefoods and environmentally friendly products. It's a good place to buy food for exclusion diets (eg gluten-free or dairy-free). Everything's vegetarian, nearly all of it's vegan and a lot of it's organic. You can find the shop opposite the main University of Bradford campus, on the western edge of the city centre, next to the Treehouse, the world's oldest fair trade café.

We don't normally do this, but we'll be closing for the university's Easter holiday, ie this week and next week. Sorry about the short notice: been having trouble getting the internet to cooperate.

Who says we can only eat Christmas pud once a year? One left - reduced, natch - made by the The Authentic Bread Company and nobly tested by us on Christmas Day. (Not that very pudding, obviously.)

All our locally made bread products are reduced in price this afternoon. We've got half a pair of white bloomers, dark rye loaves, granary rolls and currant teacakes. Come here in the next hour or so to catch us.

There was an interesting piece about the Fairtrade Foundation's banana campaign on "You & Yours" on BBC Radio 4 today. Unsurprisingly, the man from the Adam Smith Institute undervalued the importance of justice in international trade & of not denying growers overseas the dignity we all hope for in our workplaces. He said he'd rather buy "normal" bananas than Fairtrade ones &, perhaps, donate the money he saved to charity. I'd like to ask him whether he'd prefer (a) to be adequately paid for his job as well as benefitting from Fairtrade labour & environmental standards, reliable contracts and extra money invested in improvements for the whole community or (b) to be paid an unpredictable pittance & rely on the vaguaries of charitable handouts to keep him (and any dependants he may have) in food, safe water, shelter, clothing and healthcare.
