As a church, we believe it is important that we are aware of the people behind the products we use, and that we seek to promote justice through our own buying habits. Fair Trade aims to support producers in the developing world by offering them guaranteed minimum prices, premium payments to use for social projects, regular orders, and certified employment conditions. On many food products a Fairtrade Mark demonstrates that they have been sourced on Fairtrade terms. Fair Trade is helping millions of producers in Africa, Asia and South America to build more sustainable and resilient livelihoods for their communities, and assists them in responding to the challenges of climate change.
We support Transform Trade, an organisation which works for trade and climate justice. In South Asia and East Africa, it partners with farmers, workers and artisans to help them benefit from more sustainable and equitable trade. In the UK it advocates and campaigns for changes to business practices and government policy. For more information click here https://www.transform-trade.org/
