Fairtrade

Buying Fairtrade food, wine and flowers can make a real difference to the lives of people in developing countries. We’re the world’s largest retailer of Fairtrade products and with over 580 product available in store and online, so you can put more Fairtrade in your basket.

Buy great products with a clear conscience

Buying Fairtrade products means you can feel good that producers in developing countries like Kenya or Columbia are getting a fair price for what they grow. They also receive an extra Fairtrade Premium so they can invest in things for their communities – like schools, hospitals and safe drinking water. We have a range of Fairtrade licensed products to help you support Fairtrade in your everyday shop.
