Let’s hear it for nuts during National Vegetarian Week!

Meat consumption is on the increase around the world in ‘developed’ and ‘developing’ countries alike. But it is clearly the most financially wealthy countries that really take the biscuit (or should that be the burger?) when it comes to eating meat.

Special Brew!

Today, The London Coffee Festival opens its doors to celebrate London’s bustling and vibrant coffee scene. This year’s festival will feature over 250 artisan coffee and gourmet food stalls including Fairtrade coffee brand, CaféDirect (set up by Fair Trade charity, Twin – who also set up Liberation Foods).

Dining-in with a Conscience

After all that festive overindulgence and being creative with the Christmas turkey leftovers, there’s nothing better than a comforting Fairtrade nutty recipe that’s not only easy on the waistline and your wallet but also easy on your conscience.

When people make a conscious effort to buy Fairtrade products, such as our nuts, it empowers the farmers and workers who grow the products to get a fair deal – a fair deal on price, a fair deal on working conditions, a fair deal on trading terms and a Fairtrade premium that is spent on projects to benefit the local community.

Cooking With Nuts

Cooking With Nuts

We’re completely hooked on the new series of The Great British Bake Off already, so we’re thinking about getting in the kitchen and baking some nut-filled cakes. What are your Favourite Nutty Baking Recipes? Tell us using #CookingWithNuts and #GBBO to get our attention and we’ll share our favourites… The name of your recipe is enough for a share, but if you are inspired to cook please remember to make sure all your nuts are Fairtrade. Fairtrade nuts are available in the home baking aisle at Sainsbury’s and in the fresh produce area with the fresh fruit & veg at Tesco – cashews, brazils and peanuts, plus our own Fairtrade Peanut Butter is available from select stores if you have a brittle or fudge up your sleeve! LET’S GET BAKING! #CookingWithNuts...
Food Revolution Day

Food Revolution Day

It’s come to our attention that today is Food Revolution Day. We have to admit that we hadn’t heard of it until now, but it looks like we’ve been missing out! To quote their website ‘Food Revolution Day is a global campaign to put compulsory practical food education on the school curriculum. An initiative by Jamie Oliver, who passionately believes that educating children about food in a fun and engaging way, we can equip them with the basic skills they need to lead healthier, happier lives, for themselves and their future families’.. and we agree. Well done Jamie Oliver, and to everyone else around the world involved in something special today. Perhaps next year we’ll take part. Watch this space!
