Company info

At Fair Trade Wales, we support, grow and promote the Fair Trade movement in Wales.

Since 2009, we’ve campaigned for the rights of farmers and producers in low and middle income countries who are often poorly paid and live with the impact of climate change. We think that all farmers and workers, wherever they live in the world, should receive a living income.

Although Wales is a small nation, we want to play our part in creating a better world – at home and further afield – and we made history in 2008 by becoming the world’s first Fair Trade Nation.

We always put people before profit and our vision is for an equal world that trades fairly so that everyone can maintain a decent and dignified livelihood. Our mission is to be a catalyst for the movement in Wales, and in everything that we do, we strive to be supportive, collaborative and empowering.
