Retail Availability

Does anyone have a new business packet

Asked by Carol Smith from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin in Towns, Retail Availability, Cafe

Often when we learn of a new business, especially such as a coffee shop, we find that they may be well into the process of deciding on their coffee source. I’m thinking it would be good to have an introductory packet to get to the owners as they make their decisions and plans. Does any one have such a packet that is doing a good job in encouraging offering Fair Trade products. If so, would you be willing to share.

How to Incorporate Fair Trade Handicrafts in College Store

Asked by cummingsj from Fair Trade Hartwick College in Universities, Retail Availability, Bookstore

I am interested in how I would go about getting fair trade handicrafts, gifts, etc. in our college bookstore. I know other fair trade colleges have these types of products such as lanyards, shirts, scarves, etc. from organizations like Mayan Hands and Alta Gracia (which I know we have Alta Gracia shirts). I am trying to incorporate products from Jolom Mayaetik, the cooperative that one of my professors works with from Chiapas, Mexico. I know that most bookstores on campuses may have specific vendors they have contracts with and it may interfere with those contracts.
