Oxfam-Worldshops is a democratic volunteer movement that strives towards fair world trade in order to defend the universal right for a dignified life. This mission has been unaltered for over 40 years.
Oxfam-Worldshops works on righteous rules for international trade. We believe Fair Trade gives producers in the South the chance of gaining independence, which will contribute to more economic development.
We make people conscious of wrongdoings in world trade via public campaigns, actions with youths and schools, and by starting a dialogue with politicians and companies. And of course through our 235 Oxfam-Worldshops, specialty shops which advocate Fair Trade. Our wide range of quality home brand Oxfam Fair Trade products proves that we can do things differently.
Eight thousand volunteers spread our story. They run Oxfam-Worldshops, forge ties with other organizations and let people discover what Fair Trade means.
In 2002, Oxfam-Worldshops allocated its trading activities under the umbrella organization called SCRL Oxfam Fair Trade. Nowadays, Oxfam Fair Trade is considered to be the best known brand for products with a fair trade origin. The company imports, distributes and sells these products.
