About Us

Good Taste – The Sheffield Fair Trade Shop

We opened in March 2015, selling a wide range of Fairtrade food, greetings cards, jewellery, gifts, toys, and homeware. We are a not for profit business, assisted by volunteers and our mission is twofold. 

Firstly, to provide a market for high-quality fair trade goods which demonstrate the talent and ingenuity of the producers, and enable them to earn a living and provide for their families. Secondly, our profits go to support ‘TASTE’, a charity working in Nigeria to provide clean drinking water and sanitation facilities to the local people.

Our Impact

Our profits go to support ‘TASTE’, a charity working in Nigeria to provide clean drinking water and sanitation facilities to the local people.

Year 1

At the end of our first year, we donated all of our profits to TASTE Charity. An incredible total of £5000! This helped to repair two boreholes for a rural community in Nigeria. It also facilitated a ‘WASH’ workshop, which is an initiative to teach villagers how to maintain good basic hygiene practices.

Year 2

After another successful year, we were delighted to announce the donation of all of our second year’s profit TASTE Charity. An incredible total of £5608. This donation has made a massive difference for those attending a school in Uganda. It has provided them with a new borehole, latrines and a ‘WASH’ workshop. This has transformed lives in the community! Freshwater can now be gathered safely. 

Year 3

After an amazing third year of trading, we were able to donate an incredible £7000 to TASTE Charity! This money helped fund a water project at Rurcon’s new headquarters site in Jos the State Capital of Plateau State.
