Greggs commits to sourcing 100% Fairtrade chocolate

Greggs has committed to using 100% Fairtrade chocolate across its supply chain and in all chocolate products sold through its shops.

The food-to-go retailer has been sourcing all of its coffee beans and fruit entirely from Fairtrade accredited suppliers since 2005 and since then has added apple juice, orange juice, sugar sticks, sugar syrup, hot chocolate, black tea, mint tea and green tea to its Fairtrade commitments.

Greggs has now said that it will source 100% of the chocolate used in its products and across its supply chain from Fairtrade accredited suppliers. The retailer’s chocolate products include the likes of Milk Chocolate Cookies, Caramel Shortbread and Chocolate Brownies.

The move forms part of its Greggs Pledge sustainability plan which includes having a robust responsible sourcing strategy in place by 2025

Malcolm Copland, commercial director at Greggs, said: “We are proud to have continued to increase our Fairtrade commitments over time, which include coffee beans, apple juice, orange juice, sugar sticks, sugar syrup, hot chocolate, black tea, mint tea, green tea, bananas and now chocolate. It has been incredible to see the positive impact and difference we can make to producer communities. We look forward to building on this success further and doing our bit to help change the lives of the thousands of people involved.”
