Throw your very own afternoon tea, with treats like Co-op Fairtrade eggs

All the chocolate that goes into Co-op’s delicious eggs is sourced on Fairtrade terms — this helps support farmers and protect the beautiful forests around them. Fairtrade is a global movement that works to secure a better deal for farmers and workers in developing countries by ensuring companies pay sustainable prices for their goods. ‘We believe it’s the gold standard, offering the fairest deal for producers who create the products we love, such as our eggs,’ says Co-op’s Emily Pearce. An extra amount, called the Fairtrade Premium, is also paid out for communities to invest in projects of their choice. Many choose reforestation projects, which help improve the microclimate, protect soils and provide a habitat for indigenous wildlife. One co-operative in East Africa alone planted 150,000 trees in a single year. So, next time you’re instore, look out for the green and blue FAIRTRADE Mark.
