Steve Knapp, Fairtrade ANZ CEO says, “With Big Fair Bake we’re encouraging New Zealanders to choose Fairtrade ingredients when they bake. Fairtrade products are available in most supermarkets and independent stores across the country, so it’s easy to incorporate them into your regular shopping. And when you choose to bake with Fairtrade Certified products, you are making the choice to give a fair go to farmers, workers and their communities in some of the world’s poorest countries.”

Big Fair Bake highlights how easily Fairtrade products can be substituted into baked goods and the flow on benefits to farmers that this choice to use Fairtrade ingredients has. “Thanks to Fairtrade, I receive a good price for my coffee, I have financing, and I have a diversified farm. I think that what I have accomplished with Fairtrade is one of the best inheritances I can offer my children,” says José Toribio Vásque, a coffee farmer from the RAOS cooperative in Honduras.
