Quiet Company is a fully owned trading subsidiary of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). It was formed in 2007 to raise income for their charity: Britain Yearly Meeting. Each year, the Company gift-aids any profits or surplus to the charity so that Quaker work in the United-Kingdom and around the world can carry on.
