Fairtrade Gold from Cooksongold

Fairtrade - Background


The UK is one of the world’s leading Fairtrade markets, with more products and more awareness of Fairtrade than anywhere else in the world.

Sales of Fairtrade products have soared in recent years with an estimated retail value of £1,530 million in 2012 compared with £836 million in 2009.

UK shoppers are continuing to embrace Fairtrade, showing their commitment to ethical values despite the tough economic times.

In 2011, Cooksongold became a FLO-CERT registered supplier of certified Fairtrade gold.


Why Offer Fairtrade Gold

With jewellery it's the thought that counts. Research reveals that people buying jewellery for a special occasion holds greater value and significance if it carries the Fairtrade Marks*.

Consumer concerns about gold have been linked to the growing trend for fairly traded or ethically sourced products. Reports show that a third of consumers would choose to shop at stores that were concerned about how their gold is produced, while a quarter said they would buy Fairtrade gold even if it meant paying more**.

The Fairtrade dual stamp on products gives assurance to retailers and consumers that miners in the developing world are getting a fair deal for their work.
