Mars Ireland has earned the right to badge Maltesers as "Fairtrade".

The maker of Snickers and M&Ms has agreed to provide more than US$1 million annually in Fairtrade premiums to cocoa farmers’ co-operatives in West Africa.

From 2012, Maltesers will carry a Fairtrade label in Ireland and in Britain.
