For all products that have a "Best Before" date, there is a drop-down tab below the product description which has the "Best Before" date and a list of the ingredients in the product.

Unfortunately, we are unable to manufacture any more stock of Traidcraft products. When they are gone, they are gone.
We do hope to replace some of the most popular Traidcraft products with alternative supplies but that may take a little while

Fairtraders

We see Fairtraders as a vital part of our business and we want to help them in their mission.
We are currently working on ideas as to how we can best help them and will communicate those in the near future.

General

Our company name and the triangular shape of our logo represent the overlap of three vital components that constitute a Fair Trade business:

1  - PRINCIPLES
The principle that we should trade fairly with growers, producers and manufacturers in the Global South. This principle can be implemented in a number of ways:

FAIRTRADE
The Fairtrade Foundation authenticates producers, wholesalers and retailers who adhere to its protocols and pay membership fees. These products are labelled with the “Fairtrade” logo.

FAIRLY TRADED
The ‘Fairtrade” scheme is not always achievable or affordable for producers and retailers but they still want to support the underlying principle. In such cases their products are traded under the banner of “Fairly Traded”. There is a set of 10 guiding principles that anyone trading under this banner should endeavour to abide by.

FAIR TRADE IN THE MAKING
Occasionally, we come across producers and suppliers who would not currently qualify for either of the two categories above but, would be able to qualify with our help or supply of ingredients. We will engage with them on the basis that by doing so, we make another product available to our ethically minded shoppers.

2 - PRODUCERS & PRODUCTS
Relationship with growers, producers and manufacturers who produce goods that UK ethical shoppers want to buy and who are committed to the principles of fair trade.
Those relationships may be direct or vie intermediaries such as importers and wholesalers

3 - CONSUMERS
Our target audience is those UK shoppers who have an ethical stance and are willing to pay for products that are produced in accordance with the principles of fair trade.

 

We Are Fair Trade Ltd was founded to bring together these three components in a friendly, accessible and helpful website. We also want to build a string relationship with those who are willing to be Fair Trade Advocates, using their voice and their resources to promote the cause of fair trade.

So, the "We" in "We Are Fair Trade" does not refer to this company. It refers to all of us who care about fair trade, whether we are a producer, a consumer or a policy maker.

The main point is that it takes all of us, working together to make a tangible impact on the way our trading mechanisms impact the Global South.
