Win a Hamper Full of Fairtrade Goodies

Posted by Jon - 21 February 2018

As you know, we are proud supporters of the Fairtrade Foundation. When we decided to run a competition and give away some Fairtrade products, we reached out to our fellow Fairtraders and they responded magnificently.  Just look at these four hampers - ready for you to win!


We were originally slightly overwhelmed with the generosity shown, but then again, we shouldn’t really be surprised.  After all, to be licensed to use the Fairtrade logo means that we have all made a commitment to the well-being of others. 

We are incredibly grateful to all the companies, large and small, artisan and international, that made this competition possible.  Please take a moment to read about them - there are some amazing stories.  Click on their logos to visit their websites for further information and how to buy their products. 


Chocolate and Love was founded in 2010 by Richard and Birgitte, who set out to create an ethical, organic chocolate brand.  Their chocolate is now stocked in 30 countries worldwide and has won 23 awards. They source cacao, cane sugar, vanilla and coffee from Fairtrade certified cooperatives in Panama, Peru, The Dominican Republic and Madagascar.



Quinola’s philosophy is deeply ethical. Not only do they work directly with their quinoa producers under the Fairtrade scheme, they also help their Peruvian farmers raise long-term finance at favourable interest rates. Their Fairtrade grain range is packed in France by a team with learning difficulties, in an effort to support the community with a better life through team work.



Impact Trading love ethical trading and they manufacture their own brand of clothing and cotton products called "Cotton Roots". They are a trail-blazer in the supply of Fairtrade certified garments, supplying schools, companies and charities with products from Fairtrade cotton farmers in Odisha, India.




Steenbergs are passionate about providing organic spices, loose leaf tea and organic cooking ingredients packed with flavour, aroma and provenance.  The family run business was set up in 2003 by Axel and Sophie in North Yorkshire. They are at the forefront of Fairtrade spices in the UK and Europe and continually strive to work in an eco-friendly manner.



Plamil started in the 1960s with nutrition, ethics and the environment high on the agenda. They were the first company in the UK to produce an alternative to dairy milk, producing the original ‘soya milk’ and are now leaders in all things vegan. Many ingredients are organic or Fairtrade, and their suppliers are treated with respect.  Their MD, Adrian Ling, has been called the vegan Willy Wonka!




Rawr Chocolate was born out of wanting a chocolate without naughty sugars and additives. Fans of the brand care about their health, yet love treating themselves to the good things in life.  Rawr are passionate about ethical and sustainable trading, which is why they use Fairtrade cacao. They are very proud to say that, as of 2015, all their Rawr bars carry the Fairtrade mark.




Fair Squared offer cosmetics and personal hygiene products made from natural, fairly traded ingredients. Their cosmetic products were among the first to achieve Fairtrade certification.  They source ingredients from more than 15 Fairtrade partners including olive oil from Palestine, almond oil from Pakistan and shea butter from Burkina Faso.




Visible Clothing is a Fairtrade clothing company and online marketplace that provides total visibility because it owns the tailoring centre, guaranteeing a DNA of fairness behind its people, products, and pricing. They produce all their garments using the principles of Fairtrade, meaning they not only treat the team with equality and respect, but also their suppliers, customers, and the environment.



The Raw Chocolate Company was founded in 2006 by chocolate wizard Linus Gorpe.  He set out on a mission to make chocolate better for us, better for the growers, better for the environment and better for children.  He decided to explore what was possible with raw cacao and uses only Fairtrade cocoa and vanilla.




Seasoned Pioneers are the UK’s foremost seasoning company. They offer an inspirational collection of herbs and spices from the finest sources, enabling you to capture the genuine flavour of world cuisine in your kitchen. They are endorsed by many leading food writers and chefs, and their monthly spice club, ‘The Spice Pioneer’, delivers a box of fresh spices and seasonings direct to your door.



Zaytoun was founded in 2004 to support the resilience and livelihoods of Palestinian farmers under occupation, through fairly trading their olive oil. The venture was initially funded by hundreds of customers who put up payment in advance of receiving their oil, and Zaytoun went on to pioneer the world’s first Fairtrade certified olive oil in 2009.




Tate and Lyle made their commitment to Fairtrade in 2008, which saw UK Fairtrade sugar sales rise from around £4.5 million to around £40 million in 2010.  Since then, they have supported many other farmers and organisations to become Fairtrade certified. Today, they source Fairtrade sugar from over 20,000 small scale cane farmers, in 14 different groups, in 4 countries - including Belize and Jamaica.



Honeystreet Handmade is a range of luxury bath and body products, made from pure ingredients that leave your skin feeling silky and pampered.  A family run business launched in 2014, they are proud to use over 50 products certified by Fairtrade including Fairtrade Sugar, Organic Shea Butter, Olive Oil, Cocoa Butter and Apricot Kernel Oil.




Waitrose became the first supermarket in the UK to exclusively sell Fairtrade bananas back in 2007, and, as a result, the number of ethically sourced bananas in the UK increased by 10%. Over the years they have continued to convert more lines to Fairtrade (Tea, Coffee, Wine, Sugar, Chocolate), ensuring a continued positive impact across a range of supply chains in many different countries.



Tropical Wholefoods started life importing sun-dried bananas and pineapples from Uganda in the 1990s and, for them, Fairtrade means more than just buying and selling Fairtrade fruits and nuts.  They also make their amazing Tropical Wholefood bars at their factory in Sunderland. They work with Fairtrade food providers in Pakistan, Uganda and Burkina Faso.
