Fair trade (Social)
Equal Exchange Trading, in Edinburgh, was a founder member of Cafédirect. This workers’ co-operative straddles the fields of both fair trade and organic produce and now trades to many wholesalers in the UK.
Smallholder farmers in developing countries do not necessarily reap the rewards of a complex international trade system. So, by financing fair trade enterprises we aim to make sure that individuals and their families are paid fairly for their products.
