The tables below give information about sales of Fairtrade*-labelled
coffee and bananas in 1999 and 2004 in five European countries.
The provided tables show the statistic of sales of Fairtrade-labelled
in two different categories including coffee and bananas in 1999 and
2004 recorded at five nations in Europe.
It is clear from the illustrated numbers that figure of bananas was
always higher than that of coffee in both years. Whereas UK was the
country purchasing coffee with Fairtrade tag on such product the most,
farmers in Switzerland were the persons selling the Fairtrade-labelled
bananas at the highest revenue.
In 1999, it was seen that people in Switzerland sold the largest
amount on coffee and bananas, respectively at 3 million and 15
million. Meanwhile, Fairtrade-labelled coffee in Sweden was
experienced the lowest sales, at only 0.8 million. Likewise, the
proportion of bananas on which had Fairtrade tag in Belgium was the
smallest in comparison with remaining countries in the tables.
Five years later, sales of Fairtrade-labelled coffee in UK was
increased significantly, from 1.5 million in 1999 to 20 million in
2004 and became the greatest sums of money in 2004. Similarly, there
was a remarkable growth in trading bananas which were marked as
Fairtrade in Switzerland during the same period, by 32 million.
