Research project


Fair Do’s have been carrying out a fascinating research project into the impact of buying fair trade in Wales. If you’ve ever wondered whether you’re actually making a difference when you choose fair trade coffee, we can tell you that YOU ARE. And we have the stats to prove it!

Aled Pickard, our researcher, has been working closely with several of our suppliers in order to gain an understanding of the impact we’re having here in Wales. If you have any questions, feel free to email Aled who’ll be more than happy to help: aled@fairdos.com

You can read Aled’s blog posts about his research by clicking these links –  Blog 1, Blog 2, Blog 3, Blog 4, Blog 5, Blog 6, Blog 7



Our research presentation is available for you to use!

Could you help us to spread the word about the positive impact we are having on fair trade, right here in Wales? If you use the presentation, we’d love to know how you get on, so do get in touch.
