Photo Contest in Honor of Fairtrade Month-Starts Monday!

Sweeten Your Day Sweeten the World Photo Contest

Wholesome Sweeteners Sweeten Your Day Sweeten the World Photo Contest kicks-off on Monday!

Did you know that when you use our Fairtrade Certified™ products you help sweeten the world just a little? Wholesome Sweeteners actively promotes fairtrade programs and sells more than 10 fairtrade certified sweeteners, including Raw & Natural Sugar from Malawi and Fairtrade Organic Sugar from Paraguay. In normal trade conditions, farmers and workers at the beginning of the chain don’t always get a fair price for their harvest. Fairtrade certified cooperatives are generally very small producers managing their own farm. Their farming operations are small, but solid. They just need a little help moving into the global marketplace.

At Wholesome Sweeteners, we have literally searched the world for the best tasting products. You are helping to make the world a sweeter place when using our Organic, Fairtrade products. Since 2005, Wholesome Sweeteners has paid more than $8.5 million in social premiums to benefit farming and bee keeping cooperatives in the developing world, reinforcing our commitment to make the world a sweeter place. Premiums are paid over and above the price of the product and they must be used by the co-op to benefit the community as a whole. Fairtrade means that farmers can buy land, send their kids to school, and build thriving communities. Premiums paid by Wholesome Sweeteners have helped bring clean water, electricity, schools and health care facilities to villages in Malawi, Mexico, Brazil, and Paraguay. We are always trying to grow awareness of our ethically sourced and sustainably harvested sweeteners.

In celebration of Fairtrade month, every day, starting Monday, Oct 1, 2012 through Friday, Oct 12, 2012, we’ll be giving away $25 to one person. Simply share a photo, via our Facebook contest app, of how one of our products sweetened your day while helping us sweeten the world. Maybe it’s a photo of you getting your day started using our Fairtrade Raw Sugar in your morning cup of coffee, or maybe it’s a photo of delicious chocolate chip cookies you baked with our Fairtrade Organic Dark Brown Sugar  – just be sure to include the sweetener’s container in the photo. Submit your photo using our Facebook contest app, and you’ll have a chance to win that day’s $25 VISA gift card.
