Fairtrade sugar

Fairtrade sugar

Co-op first sold Fairtrade sugar in 2004. Now all the Co-op own brand sugar we sell in bags is Fairtrade.

Supporting sugar producers in Belize

Fairtrade premium from our sugar has helped workers and farmers in Belize improve their social, economic and environmental conditions.

Emmanuel Hall, from the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers Association: ‘Fairtrade has had a big impact on the sugar industry. Before, farmers struggled on their own, and the area was in poverty. Now, we support the farmers, children have parks to play in and community centres have been renovated.
