Sustainability | Fairtrade & Organic

We care about Fairtrade and organic because you do

We know you care about Fairtrade and organic products, which is why we’re working to get as many on the shelf for you as possible, but still at the same everyday low prices.

The Fairtrade Foundation is an accredited organization that certifies products to make sure they’re up to standard. If you buy a product with the Fairtrade logo you can guarantee it’s produced by workers in safe and decent conditions, and that they are being paid a fair wage.

We have a dedicated team who work closely with the Fairtrade Foundation to make sure we provide a good range of products, which we know our customers want to buy.

Organic is a legal standard which restricts the use of non-natural fertilisers and pesticides, and also guarantees high animal welfare standards. By not using chemicals and pesticides, the soils are protected while the surrounding environment and wildlife is protected from any harmful chemicals.

We work with the organic certification bodies such as the Soil Association to increase the amount of organic products on offer to our customers.
