Fairtrade buttermints are smooth and creamy traditional sweets. Great for sharing!
The sugar comes from The Kasinthula Cane Growers' Association (KCG) is an association of farmers in the very disadvantaged southern region of Malawi, prone to both drought and flooding at different times of the year. Its sugar became Fairtrade certified in 2003 and they have since received significant fair trade orders.
The Fairtrade premium has been spent on many projects and benefits to the farmers and their community. These include ploughing up and replanting with new sugar cane to ensure future crops, maize during a time of famine, electricity for one of the main villages where the farmers live and boreholes to help more people get easy access to clean water.
