About Us

SERRV is an independent nonprofit fair trade and development organization that works to eradicate poverty wherever it resides. We work with small-scale Artisans and Farmers to market their crafts and foods, and grow their income. Your purchases give you the chance to have a direct impact on our global market's great injustices: the inequality in income and quality of life for people living in developing countries. With your help, SERRV becomes a powerful tool for putting right the imbalance in the world.

Our work encompasses more than just buying and selling: We offer prepayments so our partners can sustain their business. Create new designs so they can build their markets. Teach new skills so they can develop their craft. Provide grants so they can expand their resources. We support equal rights for women. Guide sustainable development. And of course, pay a fair wage.

For 60 years, we have worked on behalf of the world's Artisans and Farmers. One of the first alternative trade organizations in the world, SERRV is a founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization (formerly IFAT) and a founding member of the Fair Trade Federation (FTF).

SERRV with us and craft an experience that will reward every person it touches, and build a sustainable style of life that'll be enriching for us all.
