How being transparent can help you succeed

In an ideal world we'd all like to make a healthy living from creating fairly traded, ethical products. Sadly many are put off creating responsibly, because of cost. After all, it costs more to make the items, which means a heftier price tag for customers, in turn resulting in less custom. Right? Wrong says entrepreneur, technologist and founder of Provenance, Jessi Baker.

There is a whole world of people out there concerned with the social impact of material goods. In fact 30 per cent of UK consumers are concerned about issues regarding the origin of products. But few know how to really support those working towards a fairer trading world. That figure is nothing to be sniffed at, and if buying trends are anything to go by, then tapping into this growing market is going to be a super wise investment.
