Ethical and Fair Trade Organisations
Traidcraft, based in the UK, was one of the first fair trade organisations to be set up. It has two wings: one dealing mainly with marketing fair trade products; and the second campaigning and lobbying on policy issues.
Fair Trade Foundation UK
The Foundation is the UK member of Fairtrade Labelling Organisations International (FLO), which unites 20 national initiatives across Europe, Japan, North America, Mexico and Australia/New Zealand.
Fair Trade Foundation
This organisation is responsible for the fair trade label and works closely with the FLO in building fair trade networks around the world.
Ethical Trading Initiative
The Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) is an alliance of companies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and trade union organisations. They exist to promote and improve the implementation of corporate codes of practice which cover supply chain working conditions. The ultimate goal is to ensure that the working conditions of workers producing for the UK market meet or exceed international labour standards.
OneWorld UK aims to provide the best online resource for news, opinion, events, and campaigns relating to human rights and sustainable development.
British Association of Fair Trade Shops
The British Association for Fair Trade Shops (BAFTS) is a network of independent fair trade shops across the UK. They promote fair trade retailing in the UK, seeking to raise the profile of fair trade on the High Street and provide a point of contact and communication for the exchange of ideas amongst their members.
