Fair Trade of HL&C

Fair Trade is an organized social activity. Embodied in its logo and relevant products, Fair Trade advocates equity in global labor, environment protection and social policy. Products with Fair Trade include handicrafts and agricultural products. Fair Trade especially focuses on the selling and transporting of goods from developing countries to developed countries.

HL&C has been providing professional employment services for Philippine, Indonesian and Thai helpers with nearly 30 years of practical experience and has played an important role in bridging the export of developing countries’ labor to developed countries’ need. HL&C has been holding its transparent trading mode and business partnership, and has developed a mutual respect relationship with employers and foreign helpers. We do not charge the helpers for finding employers for them, and provide reliable help for them in the complex social environment; we do not overcharge the employers for providing services for them, and all the fees are charged according to applicable regulations. We insist on the policy that pricing should be determined after taking all the stakeholders’ benefits into consideration and achieving a balance between them. In addition to equity, it not only includes production costs, but also complies with the social justice and environmental protection principles. Therefore, HL&C has won the trust of quite a lot of employers and foreign helpers. On account of this, foreign helpers and employers have achieved a win-win status in HL&C where they can find ideal partners.

The justice principle for Fair Trade is not only reflected in operation. HL&C has spared no efforts in support of developing countries. We have arranged Fair Trade Pantries to convince the staff with the organizations’ active participation in Fair Trade by replacing the pantry coffee and snacks with Fair Trade products, and hold seminars from time to time to help the staff understand the concept and benefits of Fair Trade & sustainability. By actively participating in these activities, we hope to deepen the staff’s understanding of Fair Trade, further develop the cohesion among the staff and fully implement the company’s social responsibility.
