Safeway is doing OurPart™ to secure and support workers by offering fairtrade certified products. What does Fairtade Certification do? It helps ensure business commitment to improved living standards, working conditions, and wages, which can all have a positive environmental impact.
Through the purchase of Fairtrade-grown products in our Safeway locations, you can also show your support. From Fairtrade bananas and flowers to coffee and chocolate, we want to make it an ethical, easy-to-make choice to support farmers across the globe.
What is Fairtrade?
Fairtrade is a recognized certification program that assists in ensuring fair pay, safe working conditions and verified social impact for farmers and workers.
When buying products with the Fairtrade Mark, you support farmers and workers. Better prices for their products, decent working conditions and local sustainability efforts help improve their lives and their communities.
What are the key benefits of Fairtrade?
For over 30 years, Fairtrade has driven social justice by changing trade. Farmers own 50% of the Fairtrade certification organization, meaning these standards are informed by the workers it directly impacts. The purchase of Fairtrade products makes a difference in the lives of those who grow some of our favourite products, from bananas, coffee, and cacao, to flowers and beyond.
What is the Fairtrade Premium?
For every product sold, an additional Fairtrade Premium is given back to communities. This allows for additional community investment, including in the health, education, clean drinking water, and insurance sectors.
What Fairtrade products does Safeway carry?
We proudly carry a variety of Fairtrade-marked products to help make a difference in the lives of both growers, workers and you, our customers.
