• Because it’s traceable
Fairtrade Gold is a simple, flexible and cost-effective way to source the gold you need responsibly and with traceability – all through an international network that’s recognised and trusted by shoppers. We are audited on a regular basis to ensure all requirements are met in-line with Fairtrade guidelines.
• Because consumer support for Fairtrade is increasing year on year
New independent sales figures reveal that retail sales for Fairtrade Gold and Fairtrade Silver grew by 14% globally and 21% in the UK in 2018, alongside increased business engagement. The figures back up the findings of the Fairtrade Foundation, which show public support for Fairtrade at an all-time high.
Reports also 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**.
