Oasis fully supports Fairtrade products – this means better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world and that sounds good to us. Whether it’s products for your vending machine, teabags, coffee or chocolates – we’ve got a full range of Fairtrade products to suit all tastes. The Fairtrade mark means:
When you buy products with the FAIRTRADE Mark, you support farmers and workers as they work to improve their lives and their communities. The Mark means that the Fairtrade ingredients in the product have been produced by small-scale farmer organisations or plantations that meet Fairtrade social, economic and environmental standards. The standards include protection of workers’ rights and the environment, payment of the Fairtrade Minimum Price and an additional Fairtrade Premium to invest in business or community projects.
Fairtrade works to benefit small-scale farmers and workers, who are amongst the most marginalised groups globally, through trade rather than aid to enable them to maintain their livelihoods and reach their potential.
For certain products, such as coffee, cocoa, cotton and rice, Fairtrade only certifies small-scale farmer organisations. Working through democratic organisations of small-scale farmers, Fairtrade offers rural families the stability of income which enables them to plan for the future.
Shop the frog, have a cuppa – PG Tips supports The Rainforest Alliance – who work to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods – and that’s exactly why we stock it. A guilt-free cup of tea, perfect!
We also offer Clipper – all of their consumables are Fairtrade products, this is what they have to say:
“Through Fairtrade we support tea producers and surrounding communities, by paying a fair price for their tea, as well as a Fairtrade premium which can be invested back into the business or community. This premium is often spent on improving local infrastructure and supporting community projects, such as roads, schools and medical resources”
