During our Fairtrade enquiry topic the Fairtrade sculptures we entered won a prize to visit Tropicial Wholefoods at Fulwell Mill Sunderland, the leading Fairtrade importer in the UK. During our visit, we toured the factory and got to see how the different products were made. We had a taster session where we got to try the different products made by the company and also the ingredients used. We then got to design our own Fairtrade snacks which we then made into a prototype in the development kitchen. This will be produced in a bigger batch, packaged and sent to school.
It was enjoyable day and our students represented the school brilliantly.
