About Us 

Fair Trade


Fitzroy is designated a Fair Trade Church, offering fair-trade tea, coffee and biscuits at congregational gatherings. In addition we ran a fair trade stall in Fitzroy for over 8 years. The purpose of this was to raise our level of awareness of the injustice of the world’s trade systems that deliver much of the food and clothing we regularly purchase. The stall allowed us to play a small part in helping communities who are suffering because of these policies, to get a fair and dependable price for the goods they produce, thus enabling them to start to break out of the poverty trap they are in by virtue of where they have been born.
Our long term vision was that the stall would become redundant as all the major supermarket chains embrace the principles of trade justice and so all the goods we currently sell and more besides become available in the main street stores. This has now happened.
