Here at Uplift Fair Trade, we are constantly talking about how we run our business and in everything we do how we make fairness at the top of our priority. In order to grow a small business, there is a limitation on crisis-management tools, it is increasingly evident that we need the government and private sectors to join together. There are no accurate answers to it, just countless "unknowns" at this stage. Supply chains, eruptive markets, and the impact of travel bans and social distancing will make collaboration easy. However, it will be farfetched to keep everyone happy.
Firstly - we want to acknowledge this is a global pandemic and while we as a business will suffer, we are very aware of how this will affect everyone. This Includes our wonderful partners and Artisans. In times like these, we recognise that it is the most vulnerable people in society that face the greatest impact.
