30 May Oxfam
Fairtrade pioneer and founder member of the Fairtrade Foundation. Oxfam stocks an impressive range of products from those leading Fairtrade food suppliers who are pioneers in their own rights. Divine Chocolate and Liberation are good examples of ownership and empowerment – the producers themselves own most of the companies. Cafédirect reinvests more than 50% of its profits in growers’ businesses and communities. Tropical Wholefoods and Zaytoun have developed new partnerships in difficult territories, e.g. Afghanistan and Palestine. A good range of Tony’s Chocolonely is a recent addition.
Products include chocolate, coffee and tea, sweets, olive oil nuts & seeds, gifts & more, plus everyday essentials: soap, shampoos, hand lotions and household cleaners.
