Most supermarkets now stock at least some Fairtrade products – and some have a very wide range.
Holland and Barrett carry Maya Gold chocolates and Tropical Wholefoods dried fruit. Some are also testing out a Fairtrade honey.
Oxfam Shops generally offer a wide range of Traidcraft goods including pasta, rice and sugar; they also offer Tropical Wholefoods dried fruits, Maya Gold, Dubble and Divine chocolate, CafeDirect and Tea Direct, and (at Christmas time) Village Bakery biscuits and cakes.
