“Many people around the globe don’t want a hand out, they want to work for their living,” said Ann Ure, the Fair Trade Chair.  “They don’t really have a way of doing that in on their home communities.  We’re providing them a market for their goods.”  Many crafts persons, artisans, and small farm producers “just need a fair market,” she added.

LOFT partners with distributors for fair trade items who “provide a fair price up front and then distribute it to stores like ours in developed countries.  There are very few ‘middle men’ compared to other types of markets,” Ure continued.
