Vested Interest Trading
Vested Interest Trading is a Fair Trade Business
Vested Interest Trading sources its products ethically and uses Fair Trade practices.
Local artisans are finding it increasingly difficult to survive with the rising cost of mass production in Indonesia.
Exports of products such as jewelry and textiles to Western countries, which once provided a decent living for people, are now being made in China and exported at a lower price. Because of this, the livelihood, quality of life, and preservation of the Balinese culture are supported by Vested Interest Trading.
Fair Trade is a global social movement that enables producers in developing countries to achieve better working and trading conditions. This is done by improving social and environmental standards in the workplace as well as promoting sustainable farming. The Fair Trade movement focuses on products that are typically exported from developing countries to developed countries.
Why is Fair Trade important in Bali?
Fair Trade, especially in Bali has the primary objective to empower and support Balinese farmers and artisans. Fair Trade’s rules guarantee a living wage, offering employees opportunity for advancement and assistance in a safe working environment, engaging in environmentally sustainable practices, being open to public accountability, and building long-term trade relationships between Indonesia and the rest of the world.
