List of Ethical and Fairtrade Businesses

By Valentina - Posted on 31 May 2011

Here is a list of business that deserve special mention as great alternatives to supermarkets and these are our criteria for including them in our Fairtrade and Ethical pages:
1. The business is located within County Durham (or in a neighbouring county in the case that the product or service is not available within County Durham)
2. The business demonstrates preference for food that has been grown/ reared and processed locally. For products/ingredients which aren't produced locally the business substantially prioritises organic, free range, low-carbon, low greenhouse gas emissions and/or fairtrade food.
3. The majority of products or services are consumed/experienced within the region.
4. The business or project is locally owned / supports the local economy

In their own words...
"We sell a very wide range of products, including wholefoods, free range foods, organic foods, wine and beers, fresh fruit and vegetables, delicatessen products, fine foods, as well as household products including Ecover, essential oils, natural soaps and ointments. If we do not have a product we will do our best to source it and stock it for the custoer.

Last year we were runners up in the BBC4 Food and Farming awards for local food retailing. We would welcome any local suppliers to get in touch to see if their product would be suitable for us to stock.

We are open Monday to Saturday 9.00am to 5.00pm and from 10.00am to 1.00pm on Sunday."

Durham Food Cooperative
Established in 2011, Durham Food Cooperative is a non-profit sustainable food initiative aiming to increase the availability of organic, high quality food items for Durham residents.

The cooperative acts as a buying group for organic nuts, dried fruits, pulses, cereals, spices and other food items. It compiles and places orders, re-packages the produce, and distributes it among its members. See their website for more information and to place your order.
