Campaign with us

Calling for fairer trade

Trade has the potential to bring millions of people out of poverty. But often the reality is very different: people work in dreadful conditions, the local environment is degraded, and farmers are paid so little that they can’t even afford to send their children to school.

That’s why Traidcraft campaigns to make trade work for people in the poorest countries of the world. We draw on our experience as an ethical fair trade business and our partnerships with campaigners and business people across the world to highlight the important issues and campaign for change.

Brexit trade campaign

Britain's exit from the European Union is likely to cause big changes in international trade - and for millions of people who trade with us from poor countries, it could be make or break.

They could find themselves squeezed even harder by powerful international competition. Or it could be the moment when the UK starts trading in a way that really benefits them.

That's why Traidcraft is calling on the government to put in place measures that make sure that Brexit works for people who trade with us from the poorest countries.

38,000 say: “Make Brexit work for people in the poorest countries”

In March, Traidcraft, the Fairtrade Foundation and Global Citizen launched a petition to Trade Secretary Liam Fox. It called on the government to make sure Brexit works for farmers and workers in the poorest countries.

In April, the petition was handed in at the Department for International Trade. It will send a strong signal to the government that the public wants a Brexit that delivers fair and sustainable trade with developing countries.
