WHY WE OFFER FAIRTRADE
Fairtrade is an internationally recognized system that encourages small-scale farmers to become organized communities, improving their environmental and ethical practices. When farmers have the opportunity to sell in this way, they receive better terms of trade and greater financial support through the Fairtrade Premium. It therefore makes good, long-term business sense for Tate & Lyle Sugars to support Fairtrade and the people who farm sugar cane. Under the Fairtrade system, farmers must demonstrate good financial practice and decide democratically how to spend the - Fairtrade Premium, an incredibly exciting process, empowering farmers to have a direct say in how to improve their livelihoods. To date the Fairtrade Premium paid by Tate & Lyle Sugars has funded some life-changing projects across 14 different groups in 4 countries.
