12 Organic and Fairtrade products to try this September

Organic September has officially arrived, and what better time to explore the finest products that dual-certification has to offer. 

Now in its 27th year, Organic September is a month-long campaign to raise awareness of the many benefits of organic food and farming, which include:   

  • Supporting biodiversity and wildlife 
  • Helping to combat the climate crisis
  • The highest standards of animal welfare 
  • Reduced exposure to pesticides  

From chocolate to wine, and quinoa to bananas, you’ll notice that many of your favourite Fairtrade products are also certified as organic, by a third party such as the Soil Association. In fact, more than 50% of Fairtrade farmers also hold organic certification. 

With Fairtrade and organic production we can reduce production costs, earn more money and have a better life.

TA NUDDAPAN, RICE FARMER

Fairtrade farmers often choose to farm organically as it’s better for the environment and for farming communities. In the face of the climate crisis, organic farms are more resilient to the changing weather patterns. For example, soils on organic farms store up to twice as much water, helping to protect against flooding, and performing better during drought.
