Buying Fairtrade Sugar, Spreads and Oil

British consumers and companies choosing Fairtrade sugar sent more than £5million in Fairtrade premium back to sugar cane smallholders last year.

Loading Sugar Cane Consumed in moderation, sugar can provide some of life’s great pleasures and whilst concerns about obesity and health are critically important, few would choose to live without it entirely.

Fairtrade certification in sugar cane focuses on small-scale producers and there are currently 54,000 sugar cane farmers in 19 countries participating in Fairtrade. The main economic provision of Fairtrade Standards in sugar is the Fairtrade Premium of $60 per tonne of sugar ($80 per tonne for certified organic sugar) in addition to the negotiated price.

This is used for projects ranging from improving farming techniques to investing in schools – helping thousands of farmers and their families in countries from Belize to Zambia to take control of their own lives and destinies and improving their communities and their environment.

Fairtrade sugar is stocked by many major retailers and supermarkets – and is used in some chocolate bars as well as by restaurants and ice cream makers. Next time you bake a cake or sprinkle sugar on your pancakes, make it Fairtrade and make life a little sweeter for the farmers who produced it as well.
