Explanation:
Body shop are displaying their social commitment here by referring to local suppliers ie. they try to buy more exotic igredients such as coconut oil and cocoa-butter from small farmersand supplers in the producing countries rather than relying on international dealers. The theory is that traders should be active in the local supplier-community and povide jobs and financing directly back to producers. This is well explained on the Bodyshop website.
