Fair Trade Products – We sell Coffee, Tea, Olive Oil and Za’atar Spice. World Community was an early pioneer in importing and selling fairly traded coffee in our community, and has used the resources from this social enterprise to support primary health care promoters in Nicaragua.
Through a partnership with Fertile Ground, we sell organic, fairly traded Tea from Assam, India, which raises awareness about sustainable agriculture and improves living conditions of tea-workers
We have been the leading promoter of the concepts of Fair Trade in the Comox Valley. Our proceeds from fair trade sales also support local organizations such as Comox Valley Transition Society, Care-A-Van, and Aids Vancouver Island.
