The home of fairly traded goods in Melton Mowbray! The Fairtrading Post in Melton Mowbray has a wide range of quality food and crafts produced under the fairly traded goods umbrella.

About The Fairtrading Post:

The basic ethos of the shop is to source fairly traded food and gifts from producers or suppliers and sell it in The Fairtrading Post. We aim to only buy stock from companies who are BAFTS (British Association of Fair Trade Shops) registered or who are members of WFTO (World Fair Trade Organisation), so that we can truly say that all of our stock is fairly traded.

All of the people who work in the shop including the directors, are volunteers and no-one is paid. The directors believe that poverty can be eradicated partially by fair and just trade. The success of the shop is testament to the fact that more and more people now know and understand the need for and reasons behind the Jubilee 2000/Make Poverty History Campaign and support the shop as a sign of their willingness to be counted in implementing trade justice.

The shop began in March 2005 and now employs in excess of 40 volunteers (some regular and some occasional helpers), who give up about two hours of their time to be in the shop serving customers. We also are happy to have stalls at special events and we would be happy to discuss having a presence at your event, if you would like to invite us!

Please contact us if you have a couple of hours a week spare and would like to volunteer!

What can we offer you?:

We offer a friendly and completely free of charge ordering system - if you find something, for example, in the Traidcraft catalogue and it is not in the shop, we will happily order the item in for you to look at, without obligation to buy.

Hampers can also be made up to your own specification. Please order by telephoning 01664 853433 or by completing an order form in the shop. By prior arrangement, these hampers can be sent all over mainland UK by courier for only a small additional cost (depending on size and weight of the hamper).

The directors of The Fairtrading Post, Dolores Harvey, Lynn Marriott and Helen Chadwick and all the other volunteers who work in the shop, passionately believe in the ethos of Fair Trade.

Please feel free to come in and browse. You'll be amazed and surprised at the range of drinks, food, jewellery and crafts on offer!

We are proud to be a member of BAFTS
