A key ingredient in many foods, the market for sugar is growing, but often smallholder farmers don't earn a sustainable living and have little future security.
Fairtrade sugar farmers receive the Fairtrade Premium for investment into projects ranging from increasing farm efficiency to improving schools — enabling thousands of farmers and their families to gain greater control over their lives, allowing them to have a positive impact on both their communities and environment.
Fairtrade sugar is sold as a stand-alone grocery item, as well as being included as an ingredient in products such as chocolate and ice cream.
If consumed as part of a balanced diet, sugar can be one of life’s little pleasures and few would choose to live without it entirely.
Make life sweeter for farmers in developing countries by choosing Fairtrade sugar in your kitchen.
