Fair Trade food and drink products

Premcrest Fair Trade Wholesaler has 40 years experience in selling fair trade food and drink products. Do you use fair trade products in cooking and every day life?

A fair trade market-based approach aims to help producers in developing countries make better trading conditions and promote sustainability. This movement also advocates the payment of a higher price to producers as well as impose higher social and environmental standards. For example, under the current trade system, less than 10% of what consumers pay for the coffee gets to the original coffee grower/producer. The Fair Trade Act is a solution to this problem. Fair trade coffee is bought directly from each individual farm, and is known to eliminate the middle man in the coffee market.

Fair Trade typically focuses on exports from developing countries to developed countries, mostly handicrafts, coffee, cocoa, sugar, tea, bananas, honey and cotton. Premcrest Fair Trade Wholesale carries an extensive range of Fair Trade Coffee and Organic Tea. There is even Fair Trade Ginger Biscuits made with fair trade cinnamon and ginger spices from Sri Lanka and India. Think that Fair Trade does not come cheap? Wait till you get to my favorite section - "Special Offers" and "Clearance". There are Fair Trade coffee beans and Organic Fair Trade tea for your selection.
