“Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms for farmers and workers in the developing world.”
As a community retailer, we hold Fairtrade’s values close to our hearts and want to give all our shoppers the chance to join the movement and help support local communities around the world.
Our Fairtrade range runs from everyday essentials right across to indulgent treats – scroll down for a glimpse of our favourites…
Handy, healthy and versatile, the simple banana is a favourite of fruit-lovers all around the world, so what could be better than a banana that tastes good and does good? We certainly can’t think of anything, which is why all our bananas are Fairtrade approved.
Whether you’re a latte lover or an espresso enthusiast, we can all agree on one thing: this magical little beverage has the power to turn the most sluggish early riser into a high-speed superhero! While you’re feeling like you can conquer the world, though, why not help to make it a better place? Buying Fairtrade coffee is a great way to give yourself a caffeine kick while helping to support impoverished communities.
Some of us love a smooth and sweet block of milk chocolate, others swear by the rich intensity of an 80% cocoa and orange blend. Whichever your preference, you’ll find a Fairtrade-friendly bar of it at your local Central England Co-op store. In fact, every single one of our own-brand chocolate treats is produced in partnership with the Fairtrade Foundation.
