Fair Trade is a partnership based on transparency and respect that seeks justness in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions and rights to producers and workers. Backing fair-trade means you make a difference through your choices. Your demand for fair-trade will extend the reach to marginalised producers in earning a fair and sustainable livelihood.

Our chocolate, rapadura sugar, and any relative products are fair-trade. The Hand in Hand fair-trade programme works collaboratively with local, fair-trade partners, looking after farm workers’ rights and well-being through education and support; creating economic self-sufficiency, while protecting the natural ecosystem and encouraging biodiversity. Organic production and fair-trade are inextricably linked: what’s better for the planet has to be better for the people living and working on it.
