The Trade Aid Programme

Trade Aid is a social enterprise helping talented people around the world improve their lives through fair trade. Est.1973, New Zealand. We’re all about change. From small beginnings in Christchurch, New Zealand, where Trade Aid was founded by Vi and Richard Cottrell, to an organisation today with a network of shops throughout the country, it’s fair to say we’ve seen a lot over the years. But some things haven’t changed, we’re still 100% committed to a way of trade which helps improve the lives of the talented producers and artisans we work with. We source our handmade, fair trade products from more than 65 trading partner organisations, which represent hundreds and thousands of small-scale farmers and artisans in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Palestine and the Pacific. We work to change the lives of these producers through an alternative way of doing business – a fair way.
