From across the oceans by the power of the wind,
we welcome a new dawn for shipping cargo under sail.
NEW DAWN TRADERS is an experimental business. We trade in wild ideas and delicacies, working with sailing cargo vessels to import produce from across the Atlantic Ocean and along European coastlines pollution-free.
Inspired by people, projects and businesses that promote resilience in local food systems, we have designed the Voyage COOP to apply this way of thinking to international trade. With our network of ships, producers and allies, we are building new models for supply chains that puts planet and people first.
We have organised Sail Cargo Festivals in Cornwall to mark the arrival of our cargo and to celebrate these pioneering sailing vessels. In 2015 we hosted the first meeting of the Sail Cargo Alliance, and have organised a yearly meting since as a coming together of people from across the globe who share this passion of carrying cargo under sail.
Through our products & events we are invigorating a new maritime culture around sail-powered cargo ships, the goods they carry & the communities they support. Our journey is a symbolic one, playing our part in the global movement to bringing food trade to a human scale & consumerism to a conscious level. In time we will add our own ship to the fleet!
