Fair Trade - BAFTS

BAFTS stands for the British Association of Fair Trade Shops, which is a network of independent fair trade shops based all around the UK.

BAFTS seeks to raise the profile of fair trade on the high street by promoting fair trade retailing in the UK. In order to become a shop registered with BAFTS, suppliers must meet the stringent criteria set out by the association, ensuring that work is guided by principles of mutual respect, social justice and equal partnership; committed to fair trade principles, paying fair prices to producers and paying respects to traditional craft methods.
