The US government pays its farmers $1billion a year to over-produce rice and dump the surplus at rock-bottom prices in poor countries. In Haiti, one fifth of the population has been driven out of business and into poverty as a result.
European wheat costs almost twice as much to produce as wheat from poor countries but – with the help of hand-outs from the European Union – it is dumped on poor countries at rock-bottom prices; pushing poor farmers out of business and into poverty.
This is an outrageous scandal. Unable to sell their tomatoes, farmers in Ghana are losing their livelihoods. Is this fair when European farmers are given subsidies of £250 million annually by the EU to grow excessive amounts of tomatoes?
Millions of poor farmers can't sell what they grow because rich countries are forcing poor countries to accept imports of cheap, often heavily subsidised, food. Rice provides a good example of the threats that poor farmers face.
Every year the EU dumps more than 10 Million tons of dairy products on the world market. Millions of export subsidies make this possible. Dairy farmers in poor countries are at the receiving end of these unfair trade policies. Cheap European milk powder forces them out of the market and reduces them to poverty.
Many of the world's biggest stars have been dumped on in support of Oxfam's campaign to make trade fair.
