We are delighted to continue working with one of the UK’s fairest traders. A core part of our mission at F&f is to help ethical brands realise their true market potential.
The pioneering organisation Traidcraft is launching it’s first ever Fairtrade savoury snack range under the GEO brand – and is already changing the lives of farmers and artisans around the world.
With a UK market worth in the excess of £40bn, snacking is the FMCG sector to be in today and we are led to believe that the market share for healthier snacks is soon going to outstrip that of the more traditional offerings. Within the sector, many brands are promoting their dairy, gluten free, low calorie and vegan credentials, almost becoming as standard. But only the GEO brand currently has all the above, and can play the truly guilt free card – by mixing impeccable Fairtrade ethics into the recipe.
GEO’s rice is from Thailand and its quinoa from Peru. The quinoa is sourced from the Cabana co-operative, just north of Lake Titicaca, where there are over 500 farmers who specialise in growing and harvesting in the harsh environmental conditions there.
The newly branded range, created by us, picks up on GEO’s theme of gathered ingredients from multiple countries and communities, with impactful flavour cues to create appetite appeal. The snacks are launching in three simple, but hugely popular flavours; ‘Sweet Chilli, ‘Herby’ and ‘Peppery’
