What is Fairtrade?
Fairtrade is about giving producers a fair price for their products. Buying Fairtrade means farmers and workers get a better deal in return for their hard work. Unfair trade condemns millions of people living in developing countries to poverty. Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their lot and to have more control over their lives. Currently more than 7 million farmers benefit from Fairtrade.
Fairtrade is a practical way in which everyone can make a difference.
When you buy a product with the FAIRTRADE Mark, you can be sure that the price you have paid:
- Covers the cost of production.
- Includes a premium that the producers’ community decides how to invest – for example in improved water supplies, building a school or healthcare.
- Encourages long-term direct trading relations.
- Ensures a commitment towards better environmental standards and sustainable production
Aussie BBQ and Fairtrade
We source most of our products locally leaving little room for Fairtrade products you would think … well think again.
Every effort is made by our buyers to purchase Fairtrade tea, coffee and sugar so if you book a wedding reception or corporate event with us you can be assured that all of your money is going to local Essex suppliers AND Fairtrade producers in less fortunate countries.
Aussie BBQ Co Ltd – promotes Fairtrade and is proud to be making a difference.
