World's 1st Fairtrade Chewing Gum

All 6 flavors of Classic Glee Gum— Peppermint, Cinnamon, Bubblegum, Tangerine, Mixed Berry, and Spearmint— are Fairtrade certified. So are the Make Your Own Chocolate Kits and Gummies Kits.

The FAIRTRADE Certification Mark guarantees that the cane sugar sweetening Classic Glee Gum and the Gummies Kit, as well as the cocoa powder and cocoa butter in the Chocolate Kit, meet the social, economic and environmental standards set by Fairtrade International. Fairtrade International, a non-profit organization, oversees an alternative system of global trade in which farmers and workers are paid a fair and stable price for their produce, regardless of changes in the market.
