The Daily Post: Who deserves more credit?

Name someone who deserves more credit than they get. And for bonus points, how to change things so they get more
I didn’t think I could think of anything to post for this one, but then it occured to me, that while third world producers get a fair amount of credit in the circles I tend to move in (though they could always get more…), I reckon there’s probably a lot more that could be done.
There’s been a huge improvement in the last decade or so, from just chocolate, drinks and bananas early on, to pasta, toilet roll, and even cotton buds these days!
But there is still so much that isn’t fairly traded. I’m no where near as active as I should be in focussing my shopping on fair trade, but even if I were, there’s still many things out there that you just can’t get fair trade, and so the workers behind these products do go unappreciated and without the credit (and financial payment) they deserve for their work.
