Fair Trade America
Committed to changing the way global trade works
The Mission of Fair Trade America
Fairtrade works to make trade more fair. Their standards require sustainable production and farming practices, improved working conditions, better prices and wages for farmers and workers, and more transparent trade practices. Fairtrade prohibits child labor, forced labor, GMOs, and encourages environmentally-friendly production.
About Fair Trade America
The Fairtrade Mark is recognized as the world’s leading ethical and sustainable certification mark. The Fairtrade Standards are a rigorous set of rules established by Fairtrade International with stakeholders from across the system, including farmers, workers, traders, non-government organizations, academics, and National Fairtrade Organizations, like Fairtrade America.
