Shindico Realty Inc. is pleased to announce that The Fresh Carrot, located at 230 Osborne Street, has become Canada's first Fair Trade workplace. The Fresh Carrot is very proud to support the Fair Trade initiative. The Fresh Carrot was established in the Organic industry in response to personal health issues of the owners and quickly realized the importance of Fair Trade. Three years ago The Fresh Carrot won the Fair Trade award for Independent Grocer with their little store in Gimli, Manitoba, selling Fair Trade Coffee, chocolate, tea, sports balls, flowers and more. Now with a second location in Winnipeg, Manitoba, The Fresh Carrot strives to be a leader in creating change, educating the community and providing opportunities to people that may not always have the means to do so on their own.
Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade and is based on a partnership between producers and consumers. When farmers can sell on Fairtrade terms, it provides them with a better deal and improved terms of trade. This allows them the opportunity to improve their lives and plan for their future. Fairtrade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through their every day shopping.
