Disclaimer re Fair trade supplier members

PDF Print E-mail
BAFTS wishes to point out that BAFTS supplier members have been peer reviewed and agree to be bound by the Ten Principles of Fair Trade as set out by the WFTO (World Fair Trade Organisation) but it is the responsibility of customers to ask questions to ascertain the ethical or fair trade credentials of individual product lines. As our requirement is 70% fair trade, individual products may not be fair trade. It is also the responsibility of customers to check whether a company claiming to be a member is, if it is important to them that the goods they buy are from a BAFTS member.
