|Church Traidcraft Stall
We stock goods from Traidcraft,
a company run by Christians with shareholders who NEVER receive dividends. The company is pleased that a number of the groups with whom they have
been working can now stand on their own feet in the market place which
allows Traidcraft to move on to help others make a fair living from
their produce. Thank you for giving the chance to so many people to earn a fair price
for their work.
The Traidcraft Team
History of Traidcraft
In 1980 a few Christians saw a way of working to improve the lives of the people they were working among in a very special way: they worked with them to improve the quality of their produce, paid a fair living wage guaranteed for some years, and also gave them a premium on top ie sharing the profit on their goods sold. At first Clipper and Traidcraft sold through churches. Christians realised that this was a God given way to fight poverty and mobilised support in the community, including supermarkets. Today over 7000 churches of all denominations have Fair Trade stalls.
