The Co-operative group are well known as avid supporters of Fairtrade and their supermarkets have been selling Fairtrade marked food products for many years, long before it became fashionable to be seen as having ethical values!
Supplies vary from store to store but over all The Co-op stock over 50 Fairtrade branded products plus around 150 of their own brand which is the largest Fairtrade range to be found in any of the UK supermarkets. If your local store doesn't seem to stock all of the Fairtrade items you'd like to buy - ask them to stock more. The Co-op are good at listening to their customers.
Discount: Remember to look out for the 20% discount on Fairtrade marked goods in Co-operative shops over Fairtrade Fortnight.

"We believe in social responsibility and self help, so we want a better deal for growers and producers in developing countries. This is why we stock Fairtrade products in all our stores, and in more shops than anyone else.
We were one of the first major retailers to sell a FAIRTRADE mark product in our stores back in 1994, and in 2000 we developed our Fairtrade range well before any other major retailers had thought to support the Fairtrade movement. See our Fairtrade track record."
