GUIDE

A LETTER FROM THE CHAIR
OF THE FAIR TRADE ASSOCIATION
Dear Readers,
We are delighted to present the 2012
edition of the Fair Trade Shopping
Guide.
In this edition you will find listings
of businesses that supply fair trade
crafts, clothing and giftware, as well
as Fairtrade Certified products such
as coffee, tea, chocolate and sports
balls. For those of you who would
like to participate in the fair trade movement, we have included listings of local Fair Trade
Network Groups and accredited Fair Trade City Councils and Fair Trade Universities.
Fair trade is about fair terms of trade for farmers, artisans and workers in the developing
world, supporting better prices, decent working conditions and local sustainability. By
requiring traders to pay sustainable prices and offer fairer terms of trade, fair trade addresses
the injustices of conventional trade which traditionally discriminates against the poorest,
weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position, have more control over their
lives and more economic self-sufficiency.
By putting just one more fair trade product in your shopping basket you have more than
doubled the demand. This small act is assisting vulnerable producers to lift themselves out
of poverty. Every friend you tell who joins you in purchasing a fair trade product makes a
difference. Please use this guide and support the products and businesses who are dedicated
to fair trade. There is a growing range of products and people who are helping us make trade
work better for everyone – every purchase choice matters.
Sincerely,
Cheryl Kernot
Chair – Executive Committee
Fair Trade Association of Australia & New Zealand

ABOUT THE GUIDE
Every fair trade purchase makes a difference to farmers, workers, artisans, their families and
communities. This Guide will help you find unique products while bringing the benefits of fair
trade back to the producers.
Each entry in the Guide includes a web address for you to find more information about the
supplier. Some suppliers wholesale their products, others retail, while some do both. You will
find some have a shopfront, others operate online. But they all stock a significant proportion
of fair trade products.
There are businesses listed in this guide that sell products which are Fairtrade Certified™
such as tea, coffee and chocolate which have the Fairtrade Label on their packaging. You
can be sure that they meet internationally agreed Fairtrade Standards.
There are other businesses listed that sell fair trade crafts which they source from members
of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), the international body which accredits
members against a set of ten International Principles for Fair Trade. There is no fair trade
label for the multitude of craft products but businesses that are WFTO or FToA help you
know their products are fairly traded. FTAANZ works closely with the WFTO to ensure that
businesses with fair trade at the core of their work comply with International Fair Trade
Standards. Fair Trade Organisations (FTOs) can be recognized by looking for the WFTO
logo and/or the Fair Traders of Australia logo (FToA) (see page 5). Fair Traders of Australia
listings are identified with the FToA logo. Other businesses listed which source crafts,
clothing or giftware from producer co-operatives or non-profit organisations which support
disadvantaged producers or indigenous Australian artisans through fair trade, but have no
formal accreditation, will be able to tell you more about their work - you may wish to ask them
what they do that makes them fair trade.
Disclaimer
While we have sought to include only businesses which stock fair trade products or operate according
to fair trade principles, no guarantee or endorsement is given of any listed business in regard to their fair
trade operations other than Fairtrade Certified products which carry the Fairtrade Label, FToA endorsed
businesses, or WFTO member organisations.

ABOUT FAIR TRADE
Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand (FTAANZ)
FTAANZ is a member driven not-for-profit organisation. FTAANZ aims to increase awareness,
understanding and support for fair trade; support the development of a strong and sustainable
fair trade movement; and link producers in South East Asia and the Pacific with fair trade
markets.
FTAANZ activities include Fair Trade Fortnight, a national celebration of
fair trade held in May each year; Fair Trade Communities which recognises
organisations participating in the fair trade movement; and Fair Traders of
Australia, a national network of endorsed Fair Traders.
To find out how to join FTAANZ, go to the Get Involved page on our website at
www.fta.org.au or www.facebook.com/fairtrademovement
FTAANZ endorses the following systems of Fair Trade:
The World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) is a global representative body
of over 350 producers and traders committed to 100% Fair Trade. Products
from WFTO accredited Fair Trade Organisation (FTO) members are produced
according to International Fair Trade Principles. Accredited FTOs display this
organisational mark as there is no product specific certification label for all craft and food
products. www.wfto.com.
A new FTAANZ initiative is Fair Traders of Australia (FToA), an Australian
network of endorsed small-scale traders of Fair Trade crafts and other
products. FToA endorsed businesses sell a variety of fairly traded products,
including crafts, clothing and giftware from WFTO members and small
producers who demonstrate compliance to fair trade principles, as well as
Fairtrade Certified™ products. www.fairtraders.org.au.
The Fairtrade Label is a product certification label. A business can use the
Fairtrade Label on products which have been certified as meeting international
Fairtrade standards set by the Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International
(FLO). In Australia, common Fairtrade Certified™ products include coffee, tea,
chocolate, cotton, and sports balls, with rice, quinoa, and sugar also available.

BETTER
WORLD ARTS
www.betterworldarts.com.au
BETTER WORLD ARTS
is an innovative SOCIAL
ENTERPRISE creating
homewares, artworks,
personal accessories
and gifts. Each carefully
handcrafted item reflects
the traditions of generations
of artisans. Combining
designs from the ancient
Aboriginal cultures with the
skills of artisans in traditional
communities Better World Arts’ collaboration enables people to live and work in their own rural
communities rather than being forced to chase work in big cities.
We work with handicrafts rather than finding cheaper machine made alternatives. We believe
this keeps culture and economy strong. Additional to our Fair Trade practices we work with
the Anangu community (people from Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands). Our direct
financial and business support has enabled the development of Ngura Wiru Winkiku Indigenous
Corporation, a badly needed advocacy body, community center and place of positive programs
and opportunities for people amongst the most disadvantaged in Australia, and at the same
time the most ancient living culture on earth. Better World Arts has identified and actively
pursued 7 income streams for Anangu in Adelaide which involve the community in the economic
and social fabric of the mainstream community and has initiated and funded social programs
which provide frontline services. Better World Arts is committed to promoting reconciliation as
the responsibility of all Australians. Wholesale or retail enquiries to [email protected]

Each product comes with a different story behind it of the
family who made it, adding that special personal touch.
