Traidcraft plc

Unfortunately, Traidcraft ceased trading in early 2023. This has been a big blow to many producers in the developing world. However Transform Trade (formerly Traidcraft Exchange) continues to exist and is still supporting producers. They are in need of financial support so please consider giving them a donation. For more information click here

It is still possible to buy fairly traded products in the Stockport area:
