Fairtrade is probably best known for coffee, tea and chocolate, but our product range is much bigger than that!
From sports balls to cosmetics, flowers to nuts, there's a way to introduce Fairtrade products to every shopping expedition so even more farmers and workers can benefit from Fairtrade.
Sports are a big part of Australian culture. Be it rugby, AFL, netball or soccer, most of us grew up playing and watching sport. Yet there are nowhere near as many eyeballs on where and how these balls are made as there are on the games in which they're used.
The majority of sports balls are carefully hand-stitched in countries like Pakistan and India. Often the workers have to toil for long hours in unsafe work environments, and women and children make up a large part of this hidden, voiceless workforce.

Cosmetics and Skin Care
Cosmetic and skin care products are a feature in the daily routine of millions people throughout the world, but the story behind these products could make a make-up fan blush brighter than face powder ever could! Fairtrade works with farmers to source ingredients such as shea butter, coconut, brazil nut oil and argan oil so you can look good without feeling bad.

Ice Cream/ Ice Blocks
Fairtrade doesn't certify cows or milk, but we do certify many of the other ingredients found in delicious ice creams. From nuts to chocolate and sugar, there’s no reason to feel guilty if your sweet treats are Fairtrade!

Ben and Jerrys
The global cut flower trade is big business for both developed and developing countries, worth more than $100 billion a year.
In countries like Kenya and Colombia, millions of people depend on flower farms for employment. The flower industry workforce is predominantly made up of poor, less-educated women, who are vulnerable to exploitation. Conditions for workers on commercial flower farms are often characterised by low pay, unsafe work conditions and long hours, particular in peak periods such as the lead up to Valentine’s Day. Show your loved one you care about more than just them by looking for flowers from an ethical supply chain.
