Traidcraft aims to help the poorest people in the world through trade. They help people to set up small industries and farms that produce things such as tea, honey, toys and sweets. Traidcraft then help to sell the things for a fair price.

Christians who were saddened by all the poverty they saw in the world set up the organisation in1979.

Traidcraft was one of the main organisations that set up the Fairtrade Foundation that awards the Fairtrade Mark to products. Have you ever seen the logo.

Traidcraft puts fair trade into practice by:

  •  Helping farmers and manufacturers in the developing world to benefit directly from trade by paying a fair price for the goods that are produced.
  • Supplying the widest range of fair trade products in the UK.
  • Giving UK customers a choice and enabling them to use their buying power to send a message to businesses and government.
  • Traifcraft put in place good practices and show that it is possible to run a successful business on fair and ethical principles.
