Fantastic fair trade

We work with companies such as Equal Exchange and Traidcraft to bring you fairly traded products which help pay the producers a fair wage, support small scale farmers and cooperatives, and give back to their communities. The Fairtrade Foundation helps to protect workers' rights and ensure decent working conditions.

Skincare for men, made in the UK

Equal Exchange have held true to the original goal of fair trade by supporting more marginalised groups, and support small scale farmers and cooperatives. Their 'Grown by Women' range empowers the female farmers involved in cooperatives. The impact of this is felt by producers such as Gayo Farmers Association - a collaborative organic coffee project of small-scale coffee farmers set up in the highland area of Takengon in Indonesia’s Aceh Province. It has maintained relative peace and unity among an ethnically diverse membership comprised of Gayo, Javanese, Acehnese, Padang, and Batak peoples. The Fair Trade price supported the co-operative’s efforts to assist and rebuild in the aftermath of the tsunami in 2004.
