We have long championed Fairtrade. So whether it's a bag of white, brown,
light brown or Demerara sugar, if it's from the Co-op, it's Fairtrade.

We were the first supermarket to sell Fairtrade sugar in 2005 and from 2016, every grain of bagged
sugar sold is fairly traded in partnership with Tate & Lyle, a UK first.

Fairtrade #TheCoopWay

In Belize, members of Javier’s co-operative BSCFA have been supported through agricultural training to improve their sugar crop, to make them more resilient to climate change. In 2015 we became the first supermarket to sell only Fairtrade sugar, which will return around half a million pounds each year to small scale farmers in Belize. This means we can support more individuals like Javier with training to increase farm productivity and improve the standard of living.
