FAIRTASTE Organic Raw Cane Sugar

The organic raw cane sugar comes from a farmer cooperative in southern Paraguay. The co-op was founded in 1975 by small-scale farmers, and it became Fairtrade certified in 1999. Today, it has grown larger in scale with more than 1500 members; among them 800 are cane growers. The social premiums were used to support development of local communities, such as the establishment of a new community center and dental clinic, and providing free learning materials to poor children.

清甜的有機原蔗糖,來自巴拉圭南部的農民合作社。合作社於1975成立,由小農運作,並於1999年取得公平貿易認証。合作社規模日大,現在更有1500名成員,當中800人負責種植蔗糖。公平貿易的社區發展基金,支持了當地社區的發展,如:成立新的社區中心及牙醫診所,而貧困學童更能免費獲贈學習教材,以知識改變命運。
