What happens when I shop Fair Trade?
I improve the livelihoods and well-being of producers by improving market access, strengthening producer organizations, paying a better price and providing continuity in the trading relationship
I promote development opportunities for disadvantaged producers, especially women and marginalized groups and to protect children from exploitation in the production process
I raise awareness among consumers of the negative effects on producers of international trade so that they exercise their purchasing power positively
I set an example of partnership in trade through dialogue, transparency and respect
I campaign for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade
I protect human rights by promoting social justice, sound environmental practices and economic security
Your choices matter. Thank you for supporting Fair Trade!
