Before Fairtrade, the exploitation and vulnerability of small hold farmers was rife. But Fairtrade puts people not products at the forefront.
Being a Fairtrade certified farmer means retaining control and a guaranteed minimum price for their products to ensure an equitable trade.
It also means they receive a development fund to benefit their whole community, assisting in the building of schools, hospitals, football pitches and other shared facilities.
It’s non-negotiable that all our coffee is Fairtrade.
