The art of selecting just the right gift for the corporate client or personal friend is enhanced by the chance to include Fairtrade chocolate, an organic Christmas pudding or an award winning wine. A hamper should impress, delight, and surprise the recipient. The days of ordinary fayre are no longer the norm. Hampers can be very specialised.
Fairtrade is now an important factor when sourcing products for hampers. Gone are the days when the packaging was poor and a bit crumpled. It now looks really good eg the Divine chocolate range has vibrant designs on their chocolate bars based on African culture.
A classic example of Fairtrade at work is the Fair Valley Estate in South Africa. It was set up with government backing and today these wines compete with the best from the wine world. Ethical shopping ticks quite a few boxes in the psychology of consumers. You dont have to buy gift vouchers for donkeys anymore!
A Fairtrade hamper means you get to taste great products and also support emerging manufacturers on the ground. They dont have to cost a lot either – Fairtrade hamper prices start from 16.95 upwards.
Organic is now readily available...
