About Traidcraft

What we do

Our mission is to fight poverty through trade, practising and promoting approaches to trade that help poor people in developing countries transform their lives.

Established in 1979 as a Christian response to poverty, we combine a trading company and a development charity.

We build lasting relationships with producers, support people to trade out of poverty and work to bring about trade justice.
