Our next Coffee Morning is on Wednesday, November 18th, 10.30am at St Michael’s. We will have a Traidcraft stall, with foods, gifts and cards for Christmas … and our donations will also go to Traidcraft.
Traidcraft is about more than just fair trade …
We focus on the most marginalised groups in developing countries, often working with suppliers that mainstream businesses would choose not to work with.
We focus on sourcing products from marginalised and small-scale producer groups across the developing world.
We support and work alongside small-scale farmers, workers and artisans to trade their way out of poverty and help them, their families and communities to flourish.
We try to understand suppliers’ problems and assist in finding solutions. We seek funding to implement short or long-term projects to help suppliers grow and develop sustainable businesses.
We try to ensure that the people who make or grow our products are connected to the people who buy them by telling their stories and showing their pictures.
For our entire history we have been pioneering and innovating in new Fair Trade products and sectors, very often as a catalyst for the development of standards which may then be made available to all through the Fairtrade Mark.
