Our Board

Our Board

Our philosophy is that you don’t have to compromise on design, function or taste to be ethical.

We are a community co-operative, and part of the international co-operative movement. We are made up of members, customers, suppliers, producers and other institutions – all co-operating to support the development of fair and ethical trading.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we are driven solely by our purpose to:

  • Partner smaller and sustainable suppliers, particularly co-operatives, and thereby help and support disadvantaged communities.
  • Provide customers with a diverse and contemporary range of fairly traded, relevant and ethical products, which have been individually assessed in terms of their sustainability.
  • Support the enterprise and initiatives of other fair trade organisations, co-operatives, schools and community groups.
