Volume sales of Fairtrade gold increased by 440% in the UK in 2015, according to new figures from the Fairtrade Foundation.

The foundation also said Fairtrade mining co-operatives in Latin America sold 170kg of Fairtrade gold to the global market, generating a ‘Fairtrade premium’ of $340,000 (£240,000) on top of the selling price to invest in community projects.
