There’s a world of Fairtrade products out there, and the range is growing all the time!
Some of the key product categories we work in are profiled below. For a full list of Fairtrade products, visit our main website.
SIP BY SIP: COFFEE
For many of us, it’s the only way to start the day. Whether you prefer a flat white, a tall skinny mochaccino or a cup of instant, we rely on the people growing the beans for our caffeine kick. Fairtrade coffee beans coming from all over the coffee-growing regions of the world, including the forests of Peru and Bolivia, the highlands of Ethiopia and the slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro.

MUG BY MUG: TEA
What could be better than a nice cup of tea? A nice cup of Fairtrade tea! Tea growers from around the world, including India, Sri Lanka, Uganda , Malawi and Kenya tend and pick Fairtrade tea – find it in bags or loose, from rooibos to English breakfast and every variety in between. Climate change is the biggest threat to our cuppa, and Fairtrade is helping tea growers face it. Find Fairtrade tea
SPRINKLE BY SPRINKLE: SUGAR
Our appetite for the sweet stuff means many thousands of people in developing countries are busy growing it for us. And when you choose Fairtrade, they get the chance to invest in making a difference in their communities – like in Malawi, where a new water pump means villagers no longer have to risk croc attacks in the local river.

BUNCH BY BUNCH: BANANAS
It’s the UK’s favourite fruit, but it’s not actually a fruit! It’s a herb. Crazy facts aside, it’s also vital to the small farmers of the Windward Islands, which rely on sales of Fairtrade bananas to keep their islands’ economy going. Look out for Fairtrade bananas in most major supermarkets and if you don’t find them, ask. Find Fairtrade fruit
CHUNK BY CHUNK: COCOA
It’s the most important ingredient in chocolate, so imagine the trouble there would be if it ran out! But cocoa farming isn’t a booming business for the farmers themselves, who are leaving their farms because they can’t make a good enough living from harvesting the pods. Selling their crop under Fairtrade terms allows them to be able to provide for their families and keep on farming cocoa. Find Fairtrade chocolate
