Metro can help you identify products that suit your needs, whatever they are!

Some common ancient grains include amaranth, barley, buckwheat, farro, kamut, purple corn, quinoa, spelt, sorghum, teff and wild rice.

 

Caffeine-Free

This label indicates that the products contain neither caffeine (added or natural) nor theobromine (or its derivatives).

 

Fair Trade

Fair trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency, and respect, which seeks greater equity in international trade.
