Rosette Fair Trade is part of The Rosette Network Ltd., which focuses on sustainability in its many forms. In short, Rosette Fair Trade is a project that highlights the socio-economic and environmental sustainability of fair trade.
Rosette Fair Trade is an online store that brings many Canadian brands together into one marketplace. In reality, many fair trade brands are small businesses and struggle to keep up with promotion in an increasingly competitive market. But bringing all of them together on one platform like Rosette allows each of these small businesses to benefit from the collective brand power of our suppliers!
We are ourselves a very new, small business. In fact, we only have one employee, and that’s the owner of The Rosette Network Ltd. Her name is Lia Walsh.
Lia is an Odawa/Ottawa-based communications geek, sustainability nerd and somewhat eccentric cat lady. She’s been volunteering in fair trade advocacy organizations since 2011, when her passion for equity and sustainability really caught fire! She is also a business consultant by day, and runs The Ugly Cucumber on the side as a passion project.
