Oxfam Shop is a passionate supporter of fair trade and deals on a fair trade basis with 128 producer groups in 40 countries around the world, who support thousands of producers including Indigenous Australians. Through fair trade we are part of a global movement calling for an end to unfair trade practices. Fair trade empowers disadvantaged communities by paying them fair and stable prices for their work, helping them to gain the skills they need to develop their business, and giving them access to world markets.
Oxfam Australia began as Community Aid Abroad more than 60 years ago but its present name enables it to share in a profile that is FLO label recognised around the world. Oxfam Shop is a wholly owned subsidiary of Oxfam Australia and although we operate in a fiercely competitive retail environment we are a non-profit organisation. Any surplus we make goes towards our further development or the work of Oxfam Australia in alleviating the condition of communities living with poverty and injustice.
