What is Fair Trade?

 

Fair Trade guarantees a better deal to producers both in terms of the price they are paid and the guaranteed market for their produce.  This makes them less vulnerable to changes in world markets and helps them plan for a better future for themselves and their families.

The Fair Trade Mark helps consumers know that produce they buy really is traded fairly.  Most of our tea coffee and snacks carry the fair trade mark. However, some dried fruit products do not carry the sign yet, as each commodity has to have criteria set for it to be assessed by.  Our supplier, Tropical Wholefoods is a member of IFAT, a global network of Fair Trade Organisations working to improve the livelihoods and well being of disadvantaged people in developing countries, and to change the unfair structures of international trade.
