We are very mindful of our heritage here at Traidcraft and being co-founders of the world fair trade movement could either mean a weight on our shoulders to uphold the original vision in all its glory, or a liberating sense of freedom to carry on breaking the normal rules of trade, whenever and wherever we can.

We prefer the latter; guarding the flames, not tending the ashes. There are lots of organisations throughout the world whose philosophy, mission and values are aligned with our own. We call ourselves Fair Trade Organisations (FTOs) and often work together. We are a member of two larger membership organisations:

PG

81 The World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO), which is a larger global membership body of FTOs and importantly includes membership in the global South - in other words, producers from Africa, Central and Latin America and Asia who are seeking to benefit from fair trade.

The European Fair Trade Association (EFTA), which is a group of likeminded FTOs in Europe, collaborating in product development, purchasing, fairly traded and organic goods.

TRAIDCRAFT IS A CHRISTIAN RESPONSE TO POVERTY. Traidcraft was founded in 1979 by a group of Christians who wanted to challenge the deep injustices embedded in global trade. We want to remain true to our origins. We do not want to stop until trade is conducted fairly for the benefit of all who participate in the supply chain. We welcome everyone to join in our endeavour of making trade fair. We work with supporters of all faiths and none, and we work with farmers and artisans whatever their creed, ethnicity or religion. We believe that justice transcends ideology and individual beliefs.


Spring Welcome to

2022

Here at Traidcraft, we’re feeling positive and excited about the year ahead.

It’s not too late to make that a reality. Just imagine the difference we can make, together.

What a wonderful position we are in, to be among the generation that recognized our planet was suffering, along with the inhabitants, and did something about it. What power we hold and how lucky we are!

We want to facilitate your journey to living an even more conscious lifestyle, by delighting you with the very finest fair trade, ethical, organic, recycled, reusable and socially conscious goods.

World leaders, entire countries, companies and individuals are making commitments to change the way they function, with the environment’s interests at heart.

You can even make a difference by planting trees with us and your fellow conscious consumers, to fight climate change and fund environmental projects on the front line (for more see page 55)

It’s a good start, but for a moment, close your eyes. Picture how the world would look, if every purchase we made was necessary, and promised to take care of people and the planet. A world where ‘buying right’ was the norm. A world where truly sustainable, and future-proof goods lined the shelves and furnished the homes of all. What does that world look like? How does the earth appear, how are the people and what do you imagine the future holds for them? Hold that thought in your mind.

How is Our Decaf Coffee

Decaffeinated?

1

First, the beans are

2

Then, under very high pressure, C02 is added

soaked in water.

(in a supercritical state between liquid and gas.)

Traidcraft coffee is decaffeinated using an organic process; a simple, toxic solvent-free extraction using CO2 and water. 10 traidcraftshop.co.uk

3

The C02 acts like a magnet and pulls only the caffeine out of the saturated bean.

4

Then you have your decaffeinated coffee beans.

Climate Change and Coffee

A transparent update from Traidcraft regarding changes which will take place in mid-2022

Recent months have seen unprecedented effects on the world’s coffee industry. With intermittent café closures and more of us staying at home, the demand for coffee has been turbulent to say the least. The current challenges that global supply chains and

Unfortunately, for all producers of coffee beans, these are not the only challenges being faced. Brazil is the world’s largest coffee producer. However, recent droughts, coupled with severe frosts due to climate change, have had a crippling effect on their coffee bean harvests. Other key coffee producing regions including Central America and North Africa have also been severely affected by climate change-related weather events. Many countries that are key suppliers of raw materials are also still battling the effects of the COVID pandemic. Traidcraft, alongside all worldwide coffee retailers, have found both sourcing and pricing of raw materials to be incredibly volatile at the minute, and as such, we have had to make a few changes, which you will see implemented in mid-2022. Due to the seasonality of coffee harvests, some origins are proving more difficult than others to source. Following discussions with our key suppliers, we have decided to amalgamate some of

our product ranges in order to secure supply, whilst still ensuring the freshness we require to keep the high quality that we pride ourselves on. These merges will ensure the blend is always as fresh as it can be and will equate to a fresher tasting coffee year-round! Keep an eye out for these new blends coming into stock from mid-2022. We have also worked closely with our logistics partners to streamline our procurement and manufacturing processes. This ensures our supply chain is as robust and sustainable as it can be, and we have been able to remove some additional transport through more direct sourcing. Unfortunately, price increases are going to be unavoidable. This is a global issue which you can expect to see across all of your favourite coffee brands; any who are not lifting their prices could be compromising on quality and fairness throughout their supply chains. Our promise is 100% transparency and that we will keep these additional costs to a minimum.

The cocoa industry is worth over $100 billion dollars a year, yet an average cocoa farmer earns less than a $1 a day. This means on average, cocoa farmers earn just about 6% of the final value of a bar of chocolate. Conscious shoppers challenge this, and invest in fair trade.

Kuapa Kokoo is a co-operative of over 100,000 cocoa farmers in Ghana, who take great pride in growing the finest quality cocoa for Divine products. They own a 20% stake in Divine, and a unique feature of the co-ownership business model means that Kuapa Kokoo has 40% board representation. The co-operative is involved in both strategic decisions, as well as day to day initiatives such as marketing campaigns and impact storytelling. 34 traidcraftshop.co.uk


Climate change is happening.

Climate change is happening now. But it’s not too late.

Shop Fair Trade

For People and Planet… For over 40 years, we’ve built longlasting relationships with innovative partners from all over the world, and brought their goods directly to you.

Many fair trade farmers and producers care for the environment by committing to a range of eco-activities including: Maximising their use of sustainable energy and raw materials

During these years, climate change has gradually become a bigger and bigger challenge. We are increasingly concerned and worried about the killer effects climate change is having on us and on them.

Reducing their water usage P rotecting the soil by practicing organic farming methods R educing deforestation by intercropping trees and crops R eceiving training on mitigating the killer effects of climate change

Why not do your bit and challenge yourself to make one simple swap in this week’s shop? Cereal, tea, coffee, sugar, pasta… it could be anything! Switch a non-fair trade product for its fair trade counterpart, and rest assured the environment will thank you.

M inimising waste and pollution, often by using recycled materials within their craft

You just have to take a look on page 15 to see the devastating effects droughts, coupled with severe frosts due to climate change, have had on Brazil, and the knock on effect this has had on the global coffee market. Fair trade farmers and artisans respect and care for the environment.

These producers are among those who are seeing the most damaging effects of climate change, despite being among those who have the smallest carbon output.

DID YOU KNOW?

Only the finest fair trade ingredients go into our highly sought-after range of cereal. You can rest assured that every delicious mouthful benefits growers from fair trade co-operatives around the world, as well as doing its bit to protect the planet, too.


Our whole cereal range is made at Alara, a fair trade and sustainable organization based in King’s Cross, London. Along with environmental sustainability, fighting food/packaging waste and social fairness, Alara’s focus has always been on clean, healthy food. Alara was founded by Alex Smith, with £2 that he found in the street. Before finding the £2, Alex was active in the squatting movement of the ‘70s, and decided to live without money for almost a year. The day he decided to start using money again was the day he found the £2. This was where the journey began… Alex spent the £2 on hiring a van to use to gather fruits and vegetables that were going to waste around New Covent Garden Market, to sell them on in a squatting shop. This shop became one of the first health shops, selling flakes, fruits, dried fruit, seeds and nuts.

Good From The Ground Up!

Liberation’s wonderful new look still contains the same delicious nuts; planted, nurtured and picked directly by the company's shareholders - smallholder farmers around the world... As both producers and owners of the company, they do a lot more than the average to grow the best quality crops whilst living in harmony with their surroundings. The peanuts come from a farming cooperative in Nicaragua that are dedicated to protecting the environment. Amongst other initiatives, they promote a return to organic farming with homemade fertilisers and pesticides using natural ingredients including sea water and molasses. The producers not only sell them for a fraction of the price of imported agro-chemicals but also offer farmers training and support to make their own. They explain: “it's an agreement with nature, it's not breaking the equilibrium. We all have the right to live and we all have a function”. We couldn’t agree more!

Trees, glorious trees. Not only are they beautiful, but they’re vital for the health of our planet. Trees absorb carbon, offsetting harmful by-products of fossil-fuel burning, and improve air quality by giving off oxygen, as well as providing shade, shelter and safety for birds and other species. Trees also play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides. Planting trees across the world is one of

the biggest (and most reasonable!) ways to fight the climate crisis. See, we told you they were amazing! You may recall last Black Friday, instead of slashing prices and encouraging you to buy more ‘stuff’ than you really need, with your help, we planted 49,168 trees, reducing 53 tonnes of C02, and helped to fund environmental projects all over the world. As environmental justice is something we’re passionate about here at Traidcraft, we didn’t stop offering you the chance to restore the earth just on Black Friday. In fact, our customers can make a difference right now, but choosing to plant 25, 50 or 100 trees for yourself or on behalf of someone else.

TOP TIP Save at least 10% when you buy in bulk traidcraftshop.co.uk 57


Why Buy

in Bulk? 1.

Here at Traidcraft, we want you to #buyright. We actively, passionately believe you shouldn’t buy more ‘stuff’ than you really need. Waste goes against our ethos and everything we’re prepared to fight for. Wait - so, why are we promoting buying in bulk? Doesn’t that go against everything Traidcraft believes in? Pull up a chair, grab yourself a cuppa and let us explain…

SAVE MONEY

Let’s use our best-selling, 100% recycled toilet tissue as an example. S I N G L E (4 Rolls) 4 x toilet tissue rolls

C A S E ( 10 x 4 Rolls) 40 x toilet tissue rolls

£2.80 = 70p per roll

£25 = 62.5p per roll

Saving 7.5p per roll might not seem like a lot in the grand scheme of things, but take a look at this.

The average person uses 1.5 rolls of toilet tissue per week.

That’s 78 rolls per year.

Times that by the average household size in the UK, 2.4.

That’s 187.2 rolls of toilet tissue used by every household, each year. Buying in bulk would save these households over £14 every year on toilet tissue alone. Multiply that across your weekly essentials such as pasta, tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits and you’re left with a substantial saving. Kerching! That’s not forgetting any potential delivery costs saved, or the time you’d save popping to the supermarket when your supplies are depleting! 58 traidcraftshop.co.uk


REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT Although we pride ourselves in using the extremely green courier, DPD, every delivery still requires a certain level of carbon output to get from our warehouse to your front door. Buying a case (containing 10 packs of toilet tissue) will save the courier nine trips.

See our blog for information on DPD’s waste management, electric fleet of delivery vehicles, solar power and more!

3.

SAVE TIME Buying online already saves you a trip to the shops, but buying in bulk saves that and more! Plus, buying a case of 10 packs of toilet tissue means you’ll only have to wait in once for a delivery which will last you weeks – bonus!

VENT for Change, the sustainable stationery brand that protects the planet and supports children’s education projects worldwide, announces the date for their next Share a Pencil Day.​

Announcing the date, Evan Lewis, founder of VENT for Change and Share a Pencil Day commented “Extreme poverty, teenage marriage, war and conflict and natural disasters are just some of the reasons for millions of children’s education to be affected. Highlighting these issues through a soft touch interactive school day is a wonderful way for UK youngsters to engage with such an important issue”.

Since 2017, more than 200,000 UK primary and secondary school pupils have signed up to take part in VENT for Change’s Share a Pencil Day. The UK's largest free to participate global education awareness day of its sort, Share a Pencil Day, teaches UK school children some of the reasons millions of children worldwide are still missing out on the education they deserve.

The next Share a Pencil Day will take place on Wednesday 18th May 2022. Visit the VENT for Change website for more information www.VENTforChange.co.uk

On this one day, during specially designed classes pupils are asked to work with their friends sharing one pencil between two, an interactive way for them to understand what it’s like to go to school without all the resources we take for granted.

UpCircle have a clear mission, to leave the world better than they found it. Part of achieving this mission involves creating quality skincare from salvaged, natural ingredients, giving them a new lease of life by turning them into something wonderful.

FIGHTING FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY ALBINISM IN UGANDA Across parts of Africa, due to societal ignorance about people with Albinism, many affected experience exclusion, stigmatization and the denial of basic rights such as education and health. Broad ignorance, misbeliefs and superstitions also endanger people with Albinism’s lives.

In everyday life, those affected by Albinism, particularly women and children, are frequently treated less than human and are not considered capable of amounting to anything.

Passionately determined, with a hunger to show society what they are capable of, Mama Mzungu have come together with the following aims: -

Cultivating sustainable job creation

- A iding economic empowerment and self-reliance

Through Mama Mzungu, the social enterprise initiative was born. Under the economic empowerment arm of registered NGO, Women and Children with Albinism in Uganda (WACWAU), they have so far been able to create full-time employment for 13 women affected by Albinism in Uganda, who create high-quality, natural, artisan products such as hand and body balms, baskets, bags and lip balms.

In terms of environmental justice, Mama Mzungu: - P rint all labels and promotional/point of sale materials on recycled paper -

Do not use any plastic packaging

- U se recyclable/reusable tins to package their products - M inimise carbon output by using manual sewing machines - H ave a very low waste output; all soap trimmings are converted to guest soaps for the hospitality trade (where possible) or made into liquid soap for local consumption Spring 2022 will see Mama Mzungu offer training and a new operations site in Tanzania.

Blue Bamboo Travel Towel 10759 (70 x 210cm) £29.99

In the last two years, PANGEA’s 40 cleanup projects have collected 37,000lbs of plastic. As well as these projects, it sets up river barriers, to prevent plastic and other waste from entering the waterways in the first place. These projects are mostly in developing countries, but not entirely; recently, a PANGEA team in the UK cleaned up 628lbs of plastic from Redcliff Wharf, Bristol. traidcraftshop.co.uk 89

Round Tassel Rug Bring all the colours of the rainbow to your home with this bold and vibrant rug. Perfect for children’s bedrooms, playrooms or living rooms. (Dia 90cm, Jute & Recycled cotton) 10575 £39.96


India has a massive rag trade, involving an estimated three million rag-pickers, or ‘raddiwallahs’, as they are known. Households are usually paid according to the amount they collect, as opposed to simply sending to landfill. However, huge amounts of textile waste still ends up in landfill.

Not only are artisans provided with free business classes, but also IT classes so they’re able to reach a wider market enhanced by technology. On top of this, artisans are provided with laptops and grants so that they’re able to buy the machinery or tools needed to get their start-up off the ground.

Buying this product helps alleviate this landfill burden, as well as supporting grass roots projects that enable lots of struggling artisans to learn the skills they need to set up business and trade themselves out of poverty.

Buying product like the Dhurrie Rug also helps fund medical camps that give free check-ups and medicine to the surrounding community, and helps support over 100 children through education, whilst providing necessities like books and shoes.

Meet the Makers A Visit to the Source of our Best-Selling Rainbow Range

Join us as we head to family-run factory, Meelarp Ceramics, where our bestselling, hand-painted rainbow range starts its life. Based in Lampang in Thailand, 95km from Chiangmai - Meelarp Ceramics is fair trade factory set in a stunning oasis of orchids, coconuts and sub-tropical butterflies. Inside the factory, around 200 employees benefit from good working conditions, fair payment and absolutely never any child labour or forced labour; these are just some of the positives which come from working in a fair trade factory. "When I started the company 28 years ago we had only six employees; now we have 200,” says the Managing Director, Mr Meelarp. Mr Meelarp is proud of what his company has achieved, and of the wider changes he has witnessed across Thailand over that period. For example, at the beginning, workers would bring their children 96 traidcraftshop.co.uk

with them to the factory; with many families having five or more children each! Mr Meelarp was convinced that children should be at school, learning skills in order to be able to improve their quality of their lives. All that has now changed; women have the chance to become literate, earn money and organise their own family planning, and their children are able to go to school. Sustainability also matters to Meelarp Ceramics. At the entrance to the factory there is a large waterwheel. While it is currently powered by the grid, Mr Meelarp is not opposed to investing in renewable energy and says it is something he will look into in the future. The waterwheel currently oxygenates a fish pond and irrigates a small, organic allotment plot within the factory grounds. Mr Meelarp laments the fact that his younger employees want spicier food and French fries instead of organic produce, but he knows his company is setting an example for others by having such commodities on the factory premises.

Supporting Refugee Women in Afghanistan: A Q&A with Tahira Afridi of Artisan Links Tahira Afridi is the Director of Artisan Links, one of MADE51’s social enterprise partners working with Afghan refugee women. Artisan Links was officially registered in 2017 in Peshawar, Pakistan, but traces its roots back to a 1985 development project started by the Danish Committee for Aid to Afghan Refugees. Over the course of 30+ years, the initiative evolved from a sewing project for Afghan refugees, into an NGO working with both Afghan refugees in Pakistan and marginalized women in Afghanistan, and finally into the fair trade Pakistani business it is today.

Farawee the Handmade Sheep This adora-baah-l stuffed soft animal toy has been crocheted from Organiccertified cotton, by a talented Syrian refugee, currently living in Turkey. (28cm, Organic-certified cotton). 10713 £33

100 traidcraftshop.co.uk

Artisan Links continues to work with Afghan women both in Pakistan and border regions of Afghanistan and is now the first and only guaranteed member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) in Pakistan. Afridi has been at the helm of Artisan Links since the beginning. She is a dynamic leader with a deep commitment to creating economic empowerment for marginalised women. Can you tell us a little bit about the women you work with in Pakistan? Yes, their parents came to Pakistan as refugees during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. The second generation is being raised and educated in Pakistan. So the artisans that are working with us are mostly second generation refugees. We previously worked with the elders, but now it's mainly the young lot.

Handmade Embroidered Pouch of Unity This charming pouch, handmade by Syrian refugees currently living in Lebanon, has three unique embroidered characters on the front, the result of a collaboration between a Lebanese designer and Syrian refugee artisans. (28 x 17 x 6cm, cotton). 10712 £49.20


The world just watched the Taliban regain control of Afghanistan. How have the women you worked with reacted to these developments? What are the refugees you work with in Pakistan hearing from their family members? The artisans still haven't forgotten the last Taliban regime. They remember the hardships that families faced. The trust factor is lacking. Uncertainty exists and these artisans are worried about their family members in Afghanistan and want them to come to Pakistan. Half the families are here, half are there, you know? So they are worried about them, but they are in touch with them via telephone.

Are there any other observations you would like to share with us? It's because of MADE51 that Artisan Links survived a very tough time a few years back. MADE51 and WFTO have been a big part of our support system so we would really like to mention this.

We are the only organisation that is still (at the time of interview it was two weeks since the Taliban took over) working with our artisans who live cross-border in Afghanistan. We are working on a really large order right now and the artisans in Jalalaba are still working on it, so they can earn income while the men in the families can't work. We are grateful to our customers for giving work to us, so we can give work to the artisans.

“It's a sad situation and we just hope and pray things get better. Artisan Links is committed to keep working with the artisans in Afghanistan, even now that the border is closed. We have found ways to bring their products back to Pakistan - it's expensive but we are continuing so we can give work to these marginilised women. Tahira Afridi, Artisan Links

Crisil

Timeless

Crisil is a family-run social enterprise based in Cochabamba, Bolivia, who create timeless glassware made from 100% recycled glass, washed and processed in eco-friendly conditions. Their mission has always had the needs of people and planet at its core. Crisil utilises traditional methods of production; during the glass making process, previously used glass is broken into tiny pieces, washed in clean water and then melted in a natural gas furnace. In order to preserve natural resources and minimize waste, artisans use as little water as possible throughout the production. The glass becomes a stretchy, viscose mass, which is mouth-blown and shaped into all manner of innovative glass pieces. Crisil employs 90 artisan glassworkers in total, but support reaches much further, touching the lives of over 500 families in the region.

Gaza Kitchen Softback Cookbook 10797 £28 This timely update of a much-loved, award-winning cookbook, explores the little-known but distinctive cuisine of the Gaza region of Palestine, with 130 kitchentested recipes for spicy stews, piquant dips, fragrantly flavoured fish dishes, and honey-drenched desserts to try at home. Peppered with beautiful photography of Gazan cooks, farmers, and fresh-produce merchants at work, and new, inspiring stories and interviews documenting the true side of Gaza, this is as much a love letter to Gazan food, heritage and people, as it is a practical cookbook. “We dedicate this book to all those who work hard every day not only to survive, but to craft lives worth living – lives that include beauty, meaning, generosity, and joy – for themselves and those around them.” Laila El-Haddad and Maggie Schmitt

The authors’ hope is that understanding how these people live, what they cherish, the stories they tell, and the sense they make of their lives, may serve as a first step in a long and arduous process of unblocking impasses and building a place where all can share the land and its resources – justly, equally and sustainably. “Poverty has become much more entrenched in Gaza, expectations dimmer. Families consider themselves lucky to scrape together enough for a traditional meal once a week. Disenchantment with political actors on all sides is even more acute, and it is hard to imagine how ordinary people in Gaza avoid succumbing to despair. Many do succumb; rates or depression and suicide have skyrocketed over the past few years. Yet, somehow, most press on. They regroup, replant, and continue living, buoyed by the care and support of their families, their faith, and the importance of the legacy they bear.” Laila El-Haddad and Maggie Schmitt traidcraftshop.co.uk 109

Here at Traidcraft, we’ve been working in Monaragala, South East Sri Lanka, with Dipped Product Limited (DPL) since 2007.

Farmers earn a premium for the sale of the rubber from DPL, who have also invested in local education, medical support and correct rubber tapping knives for farmers. DPL have provided great amounts of training to the farmers on the best ways to tap rubber and care for trees, as well as the preparation and management of the land. Traidcraft have paid for additional farmer training, helping them to better understand fair trade, business management, bookkeeping, budgeting, and good governance. Traidcraft have also provided capital to the farmer associations, helping them establish savings and loan funds in the villages.

Farmers earn a premium for the sale of the rubber from Dipped Product Limited, who have also invested in local education, medical support and correct rubber tapping knives for farmers.

Some of the groups have invested this in assets, such as coffee machines, and stackable chairs and tables, which can be rented out to generate more revenue. A female led group has borrowed money to set up a market stall where they sell clothes. Having these funds adds credibility to the groups within the villages.

DPL make our gloves from natural rubber supplied from nearly 1,800 small-scale farmer members. As well as their main crop of rubber, farmers grow cocoa, bananas, black pepper, aubergines and any other vegetables to sell or to put on their dinner tables as long as the pesky monkeys or giant squirrels don’t get to the cocoa first!

TRAIDCRAFT'S

COMMITMENT TO THE PLANET

OUR ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PRODUCT RANGE

We pride ourselves on providing a carefully curated selection of fair trade, ethical goods, each season. From the fair trade food and drink we offer, to handmade crafts and slow, sustainable fashion, everything in our collection has been selected with the environment in mind. Additionally, unless extremely delayed, all of our products arrive by boat.

WHO WE WORK WITH Catalogues Our seasonal catalogues: A re made from sustainably sourced paper Are plastic-free Are recyclable Are printed in an efficient factory where 100% of energy comes from renewable sources, and zero waste is just around the corner (currently just 0.05% of their waste ends in landfill!). In fact, they have more than halved their carbon footprint since 2014!

FULFILLING YOUR ORDERS

One significant step on our journey to becoming the ultimate eco-business is how we package your orders. We use paper tape (where possible) and paper void fill, as well as compostable bags when packaging liquids. Every small change we make gets us one step closer to our dream of one day becoming carbon neutral.

Photography For our product photoshoots, we use family-run, local photographers, CTP Creative Imaging, who are located in Northumberland. Apart from regularly running completely off-grid, CTP Creative Imaging used their time during lockdown to plant a small orchard of apple trees in their grounds, to help offset their carbon footprint. Couriers For any of your orders which exceed 2kg, DPD are our courier of choice. Apart from their flexible, userfriendly service for both shippers and shoppers, we choose to work with DPD as their green policies are very much aligned with our own. traidcraftshop.co.uk 135

WHERE IN THE WORLD?

Traidcraft has established meaningful relationships with producers and suppliers from all around the world, some of which we’ve been working with since the very beginning, over 40 years ago! We’ve also formed relationships with new suppliers and producers over the years, bringing an ever-increasing range of products to homes around the UK. This is a list of the fair trade suppliers we’ve collaborated with to curate our Spring 2022 range of handcrafted masterpieces, sustainable fashion and incredible, fair trade edibles.

BOLIVIA ANAPQUI Established in 1983, Anapqui is dedicated to improving the living conditions of rural farmers in Bolivia and promoting organic agriculture. You can find their quinoa in our pasta. COINACAPA This cooperative collects the Brazil nuts that fall from Amazonian rainforest trees. More than 1000 families benefit from exporting Brazils nuts, resulting in improvements to healthcare in a region prone to malaria and dengue fever. CRISIL Crisil is a family-run social enterprise based in Cochabamba, Bolivia. It was set up in 1991 by two brothers, Carlos and Walter Bustos, who wanted to create beautiful glassware using eco-friendly methods. EL CEIBO One of the very first fair trade suppliers of cocoa used in Traidcraft’s first chocolate bars, El Ceibo represents almost 50 small cooperatives of cocoa producers. They have thrived through fair trade, managing to add value 140 traidcraftshop.co.uk

to their cocoa beans through processing themselves rather than selling to bigger traders. BURKINA FASO GEBANA Gebana D’Afrique works with 25 local cooperatives of mango growers, as well as providing employment for those involved in drying and processing the fruit. Drying mango is a great way to preserve and add value to this seasonal fruit. CHILE APICOOP A long-standing supplier of honey to Traidcraft, Apicoop supports over 300 producers in southern Chile with a mission to promote the social, cultural and economic development of small and medium beekeepers and to sell their honey at fair prices. MIFRUTA This small cooperative of around 25 members was formed in 2009, and supported into fair trade by Traidcraft. Through working together with Traidcraft, the cooperative has improved soil management and yields.

CHINA NANJING COUNTY YIFENG FRUITS AND VEGETABLES SPECIALIZED COOPERATIVE SOCIETY Comprises of 12 farmers, 20 hectares of land and can harvest 1800mt of fresh ginger. DOMINICAN REPUBLIC COOPROAGRO With more than 2,000 members, Cooproagro focuses on providing technical assistance to farmers and improving the quality of cocoa beans, such that their reputation is second to none in the world of Fairtrade certified cocoa, which you can find in all of the Traidcraft and Eat Your Hat chocolate bars. ECUADOR NATURAL HABITATS Natural Habitats has been producing organic palm oil since 2009, with small farmers who believe in the benefits of organic agriculture - living proof that the controversial commodity palm oil can be produced without negative impact on biodiversity and positively benefit small farmers. Used in Traidcraft’s biscuits.


ESWATINI KITCHEN Eswatini Kitchen was set up in 1991 by Manzini Youth Care (MYC), a Salesian NGO supporting marginalised youth in Swaziland. The profits were then fed back into MYC’s social programmes. But Eswatini didn’t stop there. The project started with five women working in a one-room-kitchen, and now stands as a thriving business supplying sauces and spreads worldwide.. ETHIOPIA OROMIA The Oromia Coffee Farmer Cooperative Union represents the interests of more than 350 cooperatives and over 300,000 small farmers across Ethiopia – the country where arabica coffees originated. Traidcraft uses organic and conventional coffees from a variety of the cooperatives. GHANA SERENDIPALM Serendipalm produces certified fair trade and organic palm oil, without the large infrastructure and monoculture cropping used by most palm oil manufacturers. The proceeds of fair trade have helped transform the community with investments in essentials such as healthcare, infrastructure and provision of clean water. Used in Traidcraft’s biscuits. KUAPA KOKOO Kuapa Kokoo, which translates as ‘good cocoa farmer’ is a co-operative of vibrant smallholder farmers in Ghana. It was set up by farmers, for farmers, in 1993.

HONDURAS APROLMA Exclusively a women’s cooperative, each member organically owns an average of 1.5 hectares in mixed cultivation. The aim is not only to produce the very best coffee, but also to empower women and to offer them financial success and stability. Used in Eat Your Hat coffee. COMBRIFOL Established in 2004, Combrifol works with small-scale coffee farmers to challenge poverty amongst the indigenous Lenca people. They focus on agro-ecological work, as well as running a variety of social projects, including tackling domestic violence and supporting scholarships. COMSA This society of coffee farmers formed in 2001, and serves up to 600 producers. It provides technical assistance and social development projects to the wider community and can be found in the Traidcraft roast and ground coffee blends. INDIA ASHA Based in India and set up in 1975, Asha is an organisation who support the lives of the artisans who lovingly create their products. In Sanskrit, Asha translates as ‘hope’, which is exactly what the organisation gives to 1,000s of craftspeople who have inherited their artistic methods from generations before them.

MI N I MUM O R D E R VA LU E We have recently introduced a minimum order value of £10 for all web and phone orders. As transparency is one of our key values here at Traidcraft, let us explain why. The minimum order value means we can work smarter; our Warehouse Team, who are paid the National Living Wage, pick and pack hundreds of orders per day. After all overheads are taken into account, including wages, orders must be greater than £10 to be commercially viable. We hope that this explains the thinking behind our decision.
