Equal Exchange cane sugar is non-mass balance fairtrade – what does this mean? Quite simply this is the process where a sugar purchaser or producer can obtain fair trade certification for the final product, in this case, cane sugar, even if the fair trade sugar is mixed with conventional non-certified sugar at the processing plant. This is something we see far too often with Fairtrade certified sugar. So, if you purchase this you can rest assured that the entire batch is 100% Fairtrade, no excuses!
The natural juice is pressed from sun-ripened sugar cane then filtered and crystallised. No further refining is necessary to produce this free-flowing granulated sugar, suitable for all purposes.
