Just spotted this whilst doing my grocery shop. Don't know if its available in store, but its showing online for me. Approximately half of the price of an equivalent product.


Just looked at Tesco web site and product is shown at 98p. Please write how you got to 49p.

shows 0.49p at my store (Taunton) :thinking:

OK, but having difficulty finding out what my default online store is

98p at my online store too...Scarborough

49p at my local/online...heat added


Fair trade products at a knock down price.

Screw the farmers!


Voted cold due to the massive hypocrisy.

This is also showing at 49p at my online store where they also have Whitworths Fairtrade Sugar Golden Granules 1Kg for 70p.

For people objecting to this deal because it's somehow anti-fairtrade, it's pretty obvious to me that the farmers have already been paid and this deal is about Tesco clearing stock.


for a product to be clasped as fair trade a levy is paid on the purchase price of the raw material directly to the farmers and not the sale price. The real good food company who produce whitworths sugar will have to pay this levy every quarter regardless of the quantity sold or the price it was sold for

Fairtrade is balls anyway, it doesnt help the people that REALLY need the help - the farmer's workers. Notice how it always goes on about the farmer getting a better price for his crop, thats all well and good but it doesnt necessarily mean the even poorer people who work for him get a better deal :whistling:

Farmer X gets paid decent amount of money for crop.

Consumer refuses to buy brand, cost being the primary concern.

Supermarket sells off sugar for cheap to offload stock.

Supermarket realises that there is no market demand for moral sugar. Farmer can not sell crop for that price next year.

So yes, you can feel morally sated that the cut price ethical sugar you bought has cost the supermarket, not the farmer.

But it will cost the farmer next year.

I am not even saying it is a bad thing actually. But it is what it is.

PThanks-got last 3 in local this morning

Got the last one in my local store this afty. cheers!
