The British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers (BAFTS) is an association of members in four membership categories who, although independent, unite in a core purpose which is to bring about fundamental changes in the status of developing world producers through Fair Trade retailing and campaigning.
Fair Trade shops and suppliers promote social justice for the producers of the goods they sell. Our members work together to create an alternative model to conventional international trade; a model in which human rights are at the top of our agenda.
BAFTS seeks to create a vibrant network of members, so that we are better able to contribute towards the building of greater justice and equity in the world. The association and its members support campaigns that increase awareness and understanding of the needs of producer workers and of their rights.
