These salted yuca chips by Oxfam Fair Trade are fairly traded with small producers in Costa Rica. Available in 50g bags.
These chips are processed and packaged on-site by the Costa Rican producer cooperative, keeping even more of the value-add (and income) in the producer community! So products like this really help producers achieve financial independence.
Yuca is the most common name for this root in Latin America, and some folks also call it cassava or manioc. But no matter what you call it, it’s surprisingly similar to a potato chip when sliced thinly and fried, then seasoned. And because the Fairtrade Certification system is still trying to play catch-up with the many products in existence, we don’t have standards yet to cover products like yuca. But these salted yuca chips were traded ethically and fairly with the producer group in Costa Rica. So you can rest assured that nobody was exploited in the making of your yummy snack!
Deliciously crunchy, light and perfectly salted! A satisfying snack for anyone who loves a salty snack. Also gluten-free, vegan and made with no sugar added.

These are really good! They’re almost like chifles (plantain chips) in texture, but definitely more potato chip in flavour. Just salty enough for my liking and up to standard for my Peruvian husband who grew up eating yuca all the time haha.
