About us

Fairtrade is about trade justice for poor farmers and workers in the developing world. Fairtrade terms guarantee fair prices for what the farmer produces, a living wage for workers, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and provisions to improve the health and welfare of farming communities. The Fairtrade price for goods remains stable when market prices fall and rises whenever the market price increases. A Fairtrade Premium is paid to the community at the successful completion of a Fairtrade contract.
