Supporting Fairtrade

Fairtrade Fortnight is just around the corner from 25 February – 10 March.

This year we’re inviting you to support Fairtrade, which in turn supports farmers and workers, allowing them to receive a better deal.

Why Fairtrade?


The people who grow the things we love to eat, drink and wear deserve to be paid fairly for their work. With a stable income, they can invest in their communities and break the cycle of poverty.

Through Fairtrade, farmers have the chance to educate their children, improve their housing and invest in clean water to keep their community healthy. Fairtrade can transform whole communities, but only if enough people choose to support it.

How does JustIngredients support Fairtrade?


Here at JustIngredients we have a range of Fairtrade products sourced from small to medium farming cooperatives in Sri Lanka.

The co-operatives work together to improve the condition and productivity of their land – by converting to environmentally friendly farming practices, adhering to Organic principles and respecting the local ecological ethics.
