Spotlight On Traidcraft

World Fair Trade Day is a worldwide annual celebration that raises awareness on alternative solutions to the planet’s economic and ecological challenges. This year it will be held on the 14th May.

We have decided to celebrate this event by highlighting one of our favourite fair trade organisations. So here is a little introduction to Traidcraft.


Traidcraft was founded over 40 years ago in 1979. It began by operating out of church stalls and markets. Now, it is one of the leading fair trade companies in the world and the original fair trade pioneer of the UK.   

In 1986, they created Traidcraft Exchange, a charity that fights to prevent injustice and corporate abuse. In 1992, Traidcraft co-founded the Fairtrade Foundation to help establish fair trade standards.

“Almost everything we know today as fair trade began with Traidcraft.”

Traidcraft believe that fair trade is about more than just giving aid – they promote collaboration with their growers and artisans. The organisation also advocates organic farming and sustainability to protect the planet and its people. Traidcraft continues to spread awareness and change lives around the globe.
