Our company in China is the first UK company to be granted Fair Trade Status in P.R. China. And all the products we purchase from outside the EU are made in Fair Trade certified companies.
Fair Trade is based on dialogue, transparency and respect, seeking greater equity in international trade. The World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) has members in 59 countries worldwide, encompassing approximately 1 million people. WFTO has agreed upon 10 rigorous standards which its members must follow in their day to day work (see www.wfto.com for more details).
WFTO only admits new members after receiving positive feedback from two independent and impartial sources. It also carries out continuous monitoring of all its member companies, to ensure they continue to follow and uphold the 10 standards.
