How does Fairtrade work?
Fairtrade Fairtrade is a simple way to make a difference in the lives of the people who grow and create the products we love. Achieving fair trade is the top priority.
Fair for the producers
Small farmers and workers are among the most marginalized in the global trading system. At Fairtrade, they are at the core of everything we do. The characteristic that distinguishes Fairtrade from other certification systems is that producers participate on equal terms in management and decision-making in Fairtrade.
For farmers and workers, Fairtrade equals:
Prices that seek to cover the average costs of producing crops sustainably, which represents a vital safety net when market prices fall;
The Fairtrade Premium, an extra sum of money paid on top of the sale price to invest in business or community projects of your choice;
Decent working conditions and prohibition of discrimination, forced labor and child labour;
Access to credit in advance of the harvest;
Greater ability to plan for the future, with greater security and stronger relationships with buyers.
