The Checkout Fairtrade search has discovered Australia's Most Fairtrade Friendly Supermarkets, with Victorian independent supermarket Leo's Fine Food & Wine in Kew and Coles Belmont in New South Wales claiming the top honours, the Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand (FTAANZ) announced today.

Checkout Fairtrade aimed to find the supermarket store stocking the biggest range of Fairtrade Certified and Labelled products in the country.

FTAANZ Operations Manager Cameron Neil said from the entries sent in by Aussie shoppers across the country, Leo's Fine Food & Wine was found to be the Most Fairtrade Friendly Independent Supermarket with a total of 32 Fairtrade products on its shelves, while the Coles outlet in Belmont, just south of Newcastle, was the Most Fairtrade Friendly Major Supermarket, stocking over 25 Fairtrade products.

"We congratulate Leo's Fine Food & Wine and Coles Belmont, for their commitment to Fairtrade by stocking and selling such a wide range of Fairtrade Certified and Labelled products," Mr Neil said. "These stores are helping lead the way for supermarkets across the country to become more Fairtrade friendly and in turn helping make a real difference in tackling poverty and empowering producers across the globe."
