Abstract [en]

This thesis is about coffee and small scale farmers in Chiapas Mexico producing and commercializing fairtrade coffee. About 125 million families are depending on the income from coffee. Coffee is produced in underdeveloped countries in the south and consumed by developed countries in the north. It is the second most traded commodity after oil on the worlds exchange markets. The coffee bean travels through a long commodity chain before reaching our coffeecups and there are many hands who wants their share of the coffee price. Not much is left for the poor farmers and the situation is unsustainable. The coffee crisis in 1989 triggered mexican farmers to initiate a model for a fairtrade solution.
