Fairtrade is an ethical trade system that puts people first. Fairtrade offers farmers and workers in developing countries a better deal, and the opportunity to improve their lives and invest in their future. Fairtrade gives consumers the opportunity to help reduce poverty and instigate change through everyday shopping. When a product carries the
FAIRTRADE Certification Mark, it means the producers and traders have met Fairtrade Standards. Fairtrade Standards include social, environmental and economic criteria, as well progress requirements and terms of trade. Fairtrade International is an association of 25 organizations around the world, including national initiatives that promote and license the FAIRTRADE Mark and producer networks that represent producers at the highest level of decision-making in the international Fairtrade system.
