Fair trading

Fairtrade is a strategy for poverty alleviation and sustainable development. Its purpose is to create opportunities for producers and workers who have been economically disadvantaged or marginalized by the conventional trading system. If fair access to markets under better trade conditions would help them to overcome barriers to development, they can join Fairtrade.

Fairtrade is a tool for development that ensures disadvantaged farmers and workers in developing countries get a better deal through the use of the international FAIRTRADE Mark.
—from the Fairtrade website

Where possible at Christ Church we purchase Fairtrade products supporting better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.
