Information and resources for businesses and organisations looking to source and engage with Fair Trade

Ethical consumption is on the rise in the UK and consumers expect more action than ever before from businesses to make their supply chains transparent, equitable and environmentally friendly. What was once a unique selling point is now industry standard.

As one of the greatest successes of the ethical consumer movement, investing in Fair Trade can help businesses effortlessly signal their commitment to sustainable, responsible and fairer standards in production.

Fair Trade products fulfil the ethical commitments to fairer wages, improved working conditions, community investment and environmentalism that many people in the developing world have not been able to depend on (find out more about the Principles of Fair Trade).
