About us

At Trade Aid we’re all about change.

We’ve been combining development and trade for over 40 years, illustrating that it is possible to use business to build a better world.

We do things a little differently than your average business. We champion an alternative way of trade – a fair way.

There’s so much to discover about Trade Aid and the work of our trading partners. Here you can:

  • see how the way we trade helps producers improve their lives,
  • meet the skilled artisans behind our products,
  • explore how buying our products changes the world for good
  • and read these results of Trade Aid’s 2018 Social Accounts.

It’s quite a story.
