Traidcraft stands for changing peoples’ lives through trade, saving vanishing traditional skills from extinction, and celebrating a world of creativity and culture. It is the original fair trade pioneer, and advocates the importance of organic farming, sustainability, and transparency to the lives of growers and artisans around the world.  

Since it was founded in 1979, Traidcraft has led the way in proving that fair trade could work professionally. This movement of radical, church-based individuals began by importing goods directly from artisans and growers and distributing them directly to shoppers in the UK, cutting out the middlemen. The team collaborated with the growers and artisans throughout the process, and over time getting to know their needs, dreams, and their ambition. They were all partners – working together to show trade could be different, and could be fair. Fair trade was no longer about aid; it was a collaborative process of learning and trading simultaneously.

Since then, Traidcraft has continued to grow. Over the past 40 years, it has pioneered the first fair trade chocolate, coffee, tea, fruit juice, wine, rice, honey, charcoal, rubber, palm oil…….almost everything we know today as fair trade began with Traidcraft.
