Fighting poverty through trade has been Traidcraft’s global aim for over 30 years – a true leader in the UK’s fair trade movement…

Can you imagine going to work every day and earning just mere pennies for the hard work that you do? Most of us wouldn’t allow that to happen, yet there are millions of people in thw world who cannot afford the luxury to turn down jobs like that. However, there is a way out – if we shopped more Fair Trade products, we could at least ensure that people who have grown, produced or manufactured the goods will get a fair price. It won’t erase injustice and poverty in the world but it will be a step in the right direction.

Why shop at Traidcraft?

The aim of fair trade is to help producers, farmers and manufacturers around the world to obtain a pair price for their work and products. Fair trade is based on partnership and it seeks to leave out the middlemen profiting from the trades with goods and services produced by farmers and workers. Choosing fair trade means ensuring ethical trading practices, fair prices and giving the producers, growers, workers and manufacturers a fair say in the matter. Needless to say, it also provides for safer working conditions, non-discrimination, health and welfare.
