We’re very proud to support Fairtrade. In fact, JZ are the largest importer of Fairtrade flowers in the UK. We currently supply more than 40% of the Fairtrade flowers sold in all UK supermarkets.
Fairtrade guarantees that our growers receive a 10% premium for their crop. Over the last 2 years, the products we have sourced from Fairtrade farms has resulted in premium payments to our suppliers totalling in excess of £450,000. This premium is invested directly back in to the local community and each Fairtrade farm has its own committee of workers who decide how this money should be spent.
We’ve seen a huge increase in demand for Fairtrade products in recent years. In 2015, we expect to source more than 50 million stems from Fairtrade farms, compared to 38 million in 2014. This growth will further benefit the producers, their employees and the local communities in developing countries.
