    Tell Millstone Coffee: Unfair trade is rotten!
    Millstone Coffee has multiple lines of organic and fair trade coffee, but it is currently using a rogue company called Oak Harbor Freight Lines as its distribution hub in the Seattle area. Oak Harbor Freight Lines workers in Oregon, Washington and Idaho have been on strike for 13 weeks now in protest of the freight company's violations of U.S. labor laws, as well as hostile efforts by the company to intimidate workers. Oak Harbor even cut off health benefits to its retirees
    .


    If they are still using Ohfl do not buy their product.

    Folgers, founded in 1850, is the leading producer of retail packaged coffee products in the United States. Folgers broad product offering includes its original Folgers(R) brand, Millstone(R) and a license to manufacture and distribute Dunkin' Donuts(R) coffee in the retail grocery market.

    All of these companies including Smuckers who made the purchase of Folgers is under the umbrella of Procter & Gamble. Are they not also party to the international labor law agreements? Maybe Proctor & Gamble needs to know who their subsidaries are doing business with. Don't know how to post the link with the info but google search millstone coffee.
