What is Fairtrade

Fairtrade is a trading agreement which guarantees a minimum price to farmers that reflects their production costs.

Producers also receive a Fairtrade Premium, for them to invest in community development.

The Fairtrade certification process encourages producer organisations:

– to continuously improve working conditions

– to continuously improve product quality

– to increase the environmental stability of their activities

– to invest in the development of their organisations

– to invest in the welfare of their workers.
