Sweet Justice - Trade Aid

Sweet Justice - Trade Aid | Fairly Traded News | Scoop.it
Trade Aid brings justice to international trade, provides our trading partners with hope for a brighter future and creates
positive change in their lives. Trade Aid is a truly unique New Zealand based fair trade organisation. We are importers, wholesalers and retailers of fair trade
products. We go above and beyond basic fair trade standards and our relationships with our trading partners form the basis of everything we do. We share
our profits with our trading partners, we help support our partners to increase production and quality and are willing to pay for our product before we receive
it through interest free pre-financing. We engage in long term trading relationships and we speak out for greater justice in international
trade rules, all this plus paying a fairer price. Trade Aid works with more than 75 trading partners in over 30 countries. We work primarily with family groups,
co-operatives and associations often through non-profit development organisations. By forming these groups producers are often able to increase their own
political power enabling them to create social and economic change. They are better able to access credit, reduce raw material costs and establish higher
and more just prices for their products. Profits are often reinvested into developing their businesses and channelled into community projects. Through
support and income generation these partners are able to make positive changes to their lives and can look forward to a brighter future.

Life in New Zealand just got a whole lot sweeter. #handmadechange #chocolate #fairtrade #ethical
