Fair trade food & drink is an everyday way to support small-scale farmers in the Global South! Did you know that many important and popular food crops can’t be grown in Canada, and we rely heavily on the South to grow these foods? When you’re in the supermarket, you’re likely picking up items that a producer in a developing country has helped to create. The unfortunate truth is that often, those same producers are not paid a fair wage for their produce—often not even enough to cover the cost of production.
Buying fair trade food & drink is an excellent way to create positive change for a struggling producer! Small-scale producers organized into cooperatives are able to supply the demand and have a voice in their communities, which we think is pretty sweet! If you agree, check out all the great products below that we owe to these hard-working farmers!
