Why Buy Fair Trade in Canada?
Why buy Fair Trade in Canada?
Why does it matter? What difference can I make?
Fair Trade is 50% owned by the producers
producers have a say on overall strategy, use of resouces, 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
