Buy Fairtrade products! This ensures that the food has been produced in line with international standards aimed at reducing poverty and empowering farmers in the poorest countries.

What this means: farmers are paid a fair price so they can produce food sustainably and ethically. The price includes a Fairtrade Premium that must be reinvested in the business, the community or an environmental project.

The Fairtrade mark guarantees the product has not been made using forced or child labour.

The scheme also gives farmers access to export markets; more than 5000 products now bear the Fairtrade mark.
