Bridgehead, fair trade, and corporate social responsibility

Bridgehead’s steady expansion from one outlet in 2000[3] to nine in 2008[4] came after the original Bridgehead closed. A profile of Bridgehead’s post-Oxfam management in the Ottawa Citizen claimed that Oxfam Canada's Bridgehead ultimately failed in the mid-1990s due in part a “lack of sound business practices."[5] Tracey Clark bought the Bridgehead Trading Company in 2000, including its trademarks and customer lists for $30,000. Clark originally relied on financing from family and friends, but by 2002, Bridgehead was owned by 30 investors.[6]
