About Traidcraft plc Shares

Traidcraft shareholders are not seeking to maximise their profits but are using their capital for the social benefits that can be achieved through fair trade. However, some years we have been able to pay a modest dividend in line with the rate of inflation. This means that shareholders are not losing the value of their investment, and demonstrating to commercial companies that Traidcraft is operating in a commercially viable manner. We last paid a dividend in 2011.
