What is Oxfam fair?
The brand may be new, but the company and movement behind it is not. Oxfam Australia, through its affiliation with Oxfam International was one of the global Fair Trade pioneers and it continues to remain a core focus of the organisation many years later. Oxfam fair was created as a way to bring premium, quality Fair Trade products to as many consumers as possible so they could help make a difference to growers, communities and the wider work that Oxfam Australia carries out around the world.
Doing good really does taste amazing!

What is Fair Trade?
Fair Trade is an international certification system working to improve conditions for millions of producers around the world. Under the Fair Trade system, farmers are paid a decent price for their goods. It also seeks to provide them with greater job security, helping farmers to produce in more sustainable and ecological ways. Fair Trade also improves standards of living through community healthcare, education, training and assistance with business matters.
The quality of fair products is second to none and, buying fair makes a real difference in more ways than one:
- any profits go towards the work of Oxfam Australia
- all products are Fairtrade certified
