“ Brand: Whitworths / Type: Sugar „
We only got this Fairtrade Sugar made by Whitworths because it was on special offer and worked out cheaper than the Silver Spoon sugar we usually buy.
There's not a lot of difference between this and any other sugar apart from the fact that working conditions are better for the people who make this sugar, and they are also paid a fair price for their sugar instead of being ripped off by the big companies. Also the bag is GORGEOUS, it's just like the one you can see in the photo Dooyoo have got up and I love the zebra on it because it looks loads nicer than the plain white bags that most sugar comes in.
The sugar is quite fine and it pours smooth out of the bag into the sugar container, it's a pure white colour and dissolves brill in coffee and tea. I had some on my Weetabix this morning and it was as yummy as ever. I think that looking at it the granules are a bit smaller than in most bags of sugar and that gives it a finer texture.
I deffo support buying this Fairtrade sugar because it's mega important to make sure people living in developing countries are ripped off by us greedy westerners, it's good to know that by buying this sugar above others you are helping to create a fairer world where people with skills and knowledge don't get undercut by massive companies who just want to make a big profit.
It's just a shame that the supermarkets have to add their massive profits onto things like this because it's the cost of a lot of Fairtrade stuff that put people off buying it, if they brought the prices in line with things that aren't Fairtrade then they'd sell a lot more and more people and countries would benefit.
