The Fairtrade Shop at Emmanuel Church
The fairly-traded goods sold in the Fair Trade shop come from all around the world
As well as food, there are unusual crafted items, baskets and bags, jewellery, scarves and some beautiful cards. People are often surprised at the variety of goods and at their reasonable price.
Fair trade not only means that producers have received a fair price for their goods, but also that they will have good working conditions, and have been treated well by purchasers, given some advance payments and in some cases help and advice on marketing practices.
Within a fairly-traded price there is also a social premium which helps to improve facilities within a community.
In addition to all these benefits of fairly-traded goods, we give away any profit we make in the fair-trade shop.
