 Justicia is a social enterprise operating as a not-for-profit company set up in 1985.   The company exists to  promote trade justice and seeks to achieve a small part of  this by promoting and  and selling fairly traded goods while giving work experience  opportunities to those  seeking employment.  We sell a wide variety of fairly traded  goods including a  greater variety of  fairly traded food than you will see in any  shop in Bolton.  However, we specialise in fairly traded hand crafted products from  small producers  in the developing world.  Our customers tell us that our shop is a  delight with  unique  gifts available for special occasions as well as practical items of  houseware  for everyday use.  We also carry a range of locally made eco-friendly  items  alongside a strong range of Ecover  household products.

The day-to-day running of the shop is in the hands of two managers appointed by the Board assisted by a team of dedicated volunteers.

 We supply goods on a sale-or-return basis to people willing to carry fair  trade into other organisations such as faith groups, schools and  community groups.  We will also run stalls and supply speakers for  events which promote fair trade.


We are a founder member of BAFTS, the British Association for Fair Trade Shops, and use their list of accredited fair trade suppliers.   BAFTS criteria go beyond fair prices to include social and environmental considerations and gender equality.   For more information on BAFTS see www.bafts.org.uk.

BAFTS membership enables the shop to stock a wide range of fairly traded goods that are not at present eligible for the fairtrade mark, such as many foodstuffs, jewellery, ornaments, and musical instruments etc. We also stock household goods which are environmentally friendly, and cards and stationery produced by fair trade companies such as Traidcraft..
