Are you still wondering why it matters?
And what difference can your purchases really make?
Fair Trade is 50% owned by the producers
- producers have a say on overall strategy, use of resources, and setting prices, premiums, and standards
Fair Trade Minimum Price
- the producers receive a price that covers the cost of sustainable production and protects them from fluctuating market prices
Fair Trade Premium
- over and above the Minimum Price, the Premium goes into a communal fund to support the workers and their communities, and the producers determine how the fund will be spent
When you buy products with the Fair Trade mark you are supporting farmers and workers as they work to improve their lives and their communities
