Partners and Brands
At Create Fair Trade, we source most of our goods from Fair Trade organisations, start-up co-operatives and small groups endeavouring to practice the Fair Trade principals but without the means to obtain a guarantee. We have expanded our range to include ethical and environmentally sustainable products.
Create Fair Trade supports grass roots small producers to stay sustainable and encourage them to practice fair trade principals. We are committed to developing long-term relationships with these groups so the dialogue about fair working conditions can continue.
