Fair trade is an institutional arrangement designed to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions. Members of the fair trade movement advocate the payment of higher prices to exporters, as well as improved social and environmental standards. Here are 5 fair trade products one can try this summer.
- Lemon aid’s Blood Orange flavour
The newest of the Lemon Aid range, we love the refreshing taste of blood orange, grapefruit, lemon and a hint of cherry. Full of Fair-trade, organic certified ingredients including cane sugar grown in Paraguay. This lovely thirst quencher is Suitable for everyone.
- Tilimuqui Fair-trade Organic Malbec
This Fairtrade organic Malbec has Argentinian sunshine written all over it with its black fruit flavours. This one is great for a BBQ or a night in. Good news for veggies, it’s suitable for you too. Cheers to that!
- Ben & Jerry’s Moo-phoria Light Ice Cream
For anyone looking for a lighter way to enjoy ice cream, this one is for you! Ben & Jerry’s have done it again by creating two new flavours, Chocolate Cookie Dough and Caramel Cookie Fix, which are light on calories but heavy on fairness, chunks and swirls. Fewer calories and less fat than regular ice cream mean it’s even sweeter to dig into a bowl of your favourite sweet treat!
- Hilltop Honey – Organic and Fairtrade
Hilltop Honey is 100% organic, Fairtrade certified. And sales from these tasty, amber pots are making life sweeter for farmers in South America. It’s also the first of its kind to hit major supermarkets! Hilltop Honey made from acacia blossom raw and organic acacia honey in a squeeze bottle. Acacia honey is always runny honey, but some people like to squeeze it into their food.
- Chocolate and Love’s pomegranate flavour
This scrummy chocolate brand has now won 25 awards for its deliciousness! We probably could just stop there but this bar is also jam-packed with Fair-trade cocoa from Madagascar which is some of the best in the world. Not only that but we really enjoy the fruitiness of the pomegranate. The only problem is you might not want to share it.
