Why is Trade Right International a Social Business

Trade Right International is a ‘holistic social business’ – a business with social transformational aims and financial outcomes.  It is set up as a company in order that its social purposes are more readily achieved and therefore its whole ethos is unashamedly biased to the poor as it pioneers a different business model within the communities in which it operates.
