Our history with Fairtrade – 27 years and counting
Did you know our history with Fairtrade dates back to over 27 years ago? Our members have told us that Fairtrade is important to them, so we’re making it easier for them to choose Fairtrade. We were the very first supermarket to sell Fairtrade bananas, while 100% of the cocoa in Co-op products is from Fairtrade farms.
Watch our Fairtrade timeline below:
Throughout our history, we believe that Fairtrade is the gold standard.
Pays producers fairly – Fairtrade minimum pricing means that farmers and producers get a fairer price, despite changes to the market
Gives producers a say in their future - farmers and workers improve their lives and have greater control over their futures and their communities
Does the right thing by both people and the planet – Fairtrade works in conjunction with worldwide producers to tackle the impacts of climate change, through adaption, mitigation and reforestation projects
Strengthens communities around the world – the premium provides more funds to producers who then choose how to invest in projects that benefit their communities
