Home » Fair Trade

Fair tradeFair trade is an organized social movement whose stated goal is to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions and to promote sustainability.

Fair Trade standards stipulate that traders have to:

  • pay a price to producers that covers the costs of sustainable production and living;
  • pay a premium that producers can invest in development;
  • partially pay in advance, when producers¬†ask for it;
  • sign contracts that allow for long-term planning and sustainable production practices.
