What is Fair Trade?

Fair Trade is all about making sure that international trade doesn’t exploit the workers involved in the production chain of products that are imported into the UK and other developed nations.

Exploitation can come in many forms including low wages and poor conditions.  Companies that strive to trade in an ethical way get involved in the supply chain right from the source and ensure that workers are given a fair deal. Direct contact and contracts with the producers of the good ensures that conditions can be monitored, and that there are no middlemen so wages can remain reasonable.

While wages and working conditions are a large part of the ethos, fair trade also includes instigating projects to improve the general life of workers and their families outside of the factories and working areas.

Many projects involve improving housing, education and access to food and water.

We hope that one day Fair Trade will not be needed because all trade will be fair.  Until that day please support ethical trading by choosing products from BAFTS accredited companies.
