Rod Thorpe: October 2018
You may have heard or read that the trading arm of Traidcraft is having to consider its future. That said, Traidcraft continues to trade and seeks support to maintain its impact in helping folk trade their way out of poverty. There is an element of 'Watch this space' when it comes to what decision will be made by Traidcraft, however every one of us has the ability to influence the decision by buying Fairtrade. While many other sources of Faitrade goods could be affected by possible changes at Traidcraft, other suppliers and producers of Fairtrade goods continue their individual businesses. The provision of Fairtrade goods on offer to local Methodist Churches, individuals, churches and organisations continues through Rod Thorpe. To contact him email firstname.lastname@example.org.
