Tate & Lyle sugar to be Fairtrade

BBC reports that Tate & Lyle sugar which is to be sold to consumers will be Fairtrade only.

Granulated white cane sugar will be the brand’s first Fairtrade product but it says it expects its entire retail range to follow by the end of 2009.

Fairtrade Foundation executive director Harriet Lamb said:

“In terms of size and scale, this is the biggest ever Fairtrade switch by a UK company and it’s tremendous this iconic UK brand is backing Fairtrade.”
