FAIR SQUARED is an alternative trading organization with the ambition to reduce the imbalance in the world market. Our company idea comes from the 2005 Oxfam Campagne “Make Poverty History”. In 2010 were the first FAIR SQUARED products launched in England over OXFAM and Amnesty International. The idea was received by students in the UK and they continued to spread our products in England. Our first products included condoms, hand creams, and lip balms. The demand grew quickly and other business partners started offering FAIR SQUARED products in Scandinavia and Benelux. The company moved in 2013 to Cologne, Germany and continued running the business as FAIR SQUARED GmbH and transferred the production to the German part of the national park Eifel, as well as to Sarstedt, close to Hannover. The range grew from 12 to 80 articles. Thanks to the continuous request for products from our customers were we able to become even more partners providing us with fairly traded ingredients (olive oil from Palestine, almond oil from Pakistan, shea butter from Burkina Faso and natural rubber from India). Today we have 15 partners from all over the world and our products are being sold in all of Europe.

Outlook

There are more than 1210 Fairtrade producer groups worldwide that now profit from Fairtrade. We would be delighted when we thanks to the support of our customers could continue to develop our range to 100 products – the new ones containing fairly traded ingredients such as rose oil, mangoes, cucumber or cotton. Get to know some of our partners in the chapter “Our Partners”.
