Civil society has responded to the predicament of marginalised producers by the rapid emergence of the fair trade market both within the UK and internationally.
Co-operative Food is part of a larger group of diverse businesses from travel to The Co-operative Bank. The Co-op is consumer owned and democratically controlled (one member one vote) by its members, ordinary shoppers.
Co-operative Food’s success in mainstreaming fair trade demonstrates the important role played by social resources in ethical relationship marketing.
