Thanks for supporting Fairtrade flowers at Sainsbury’s
As well as being the UK’s largest retailer of Fairtrade flowers, all our rose bunches from Kenya have been Fairtrade since 2007. Over that period, our growers and their workers have earned over £1 million in Fairtrade premiums which they’ve invested in their local communities.
Buying Fairtrade flowers can make a real difference to people’s lives. Recent projects funded by Fairtrade premiums include supporting the construction of a new women’s hospital in Naivasha and provision of safe drinking water to local communities in Kenya.
By working closely with farmers we can ensure that the flowers they grow are of the highest quality – and that their local communities and employees benefit from the trade in Fairtrade flowers.
