Fair trade is an approach to business and to development based on dialogue, transparency, and respect that seeks to create greater equity in the international trading system.
Fair trade supports farmers and craftspeople in developing countries who are socially and economically marginalized. These producers lack economic opportunity and often face steep hurdles in finding markets and customers for their goods.
Fair trade is much more than just trade. At the core of the fair trade model is a direct, cooperative, and in-depth relationship between buyers and sellers that keeps all of the principles of fair trade at the forefront.
Buy responsibly! Choosing fair trade products demonstrates your commitment to a fair wage and just labor conditions for the workers at all levels of production. Look for the fair trade label when buying, coffee, tea, hot cocoa, chocolate, fresh fruit, and other products!
