Bake a difference!

Traidcraft
by Rachael Colquhoun, Product Manager at Traidcraft

If you’re a lover of baking, what better way to enjoy your Fairtrade ingredients than whipping them up into your favourite cake.

From golden honey and plump and juicy raisins from Chile, to creamy cashew nuts from Burkina Faso, unrefined sugar from Mauritius, dried apricots from Pakistan, succulent dates from Palestine and rich dark chocolate from central America, all are perfect for the most amazing culinary creation!

Mountain Fruits is a fair trade fruit and nut company in Pakistan working with isolated communities providing Traidcraft with juicy Hunza apricots and crunchy walnuts.

There are more than 5,000 growers in remote places across the Karakorum and Himalayan Mountain region where all year round many farming families still don’t have access to clean water. 

Over the years, thanks to the Fairtrade Premium, Mountain Fruits has been able to provide all sorts of benefits for remote rural communities, including books for community schools, a new playground, building a community hall and schools, water tanks, a generator and sewing machines. They have made a huge difference to people’s lives.
