Vision & Mission
How Fairtrade works
Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade and is based on a partnership between producers and consumers. When farmers can sell on Fairtrade terms, it provides them with a better deal and improved terms of trade. This allows them the opportunity to improve their lives and plan for their future.
Fairtrade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through their every-day shopping.
When a product carries the FAIRTRADE MARK it means the producers and traders have met Fairtrade Standards. The Standards are designed to address the imbalance of power in trading relationships, unstable markets and the injustices of conventional.
