Fair Trade Baking

Do you sometimes wish there was a way to make your sweet treats a little less sinful? Well, we at Rainbow Turtle don’t have any advice on reducing sugar or calorie content, but we can help you to make your baking fairer on those who produce the ingredients. We sell a wide variety of sugar, dried fruit, and chocolate that can help to make your cakes fairer. This video from the Fairtrade Foundation explains why you might want to switch over some of your ingredients:

But we’re not the only ones who have had the idea to mix things up with fairer ingredients. This Co-op recipe for Fairtrade Chocolate and Banana Loaf Cake and this BBC Good Food recipe for Fair Trade Chocolate Brownies both show how easy it is to make an impact with some small changes, and the Fairtrade Foundation provide a comprehensive guide to Fairtrade ingredients. Even Delia Smith has got in on the act, showing her support for Fair Trade in one of her cookbooks.
