Why Choose Fairtrade?
Generations of growth, technology and wealth creation should have given us a cleaner, fairer world. Instead we have created a climate crisis and massive inequality.
Fairtrade Fortnight is the time when communities come together to shine a light on the problems and focus on how we can all become part of the solution.
Many of the people producing our daily necessities and luxuries do not earn enough to feed their families, invest in their communities or build any kind of resilience against health and climate shocks.
The Fairtrade Foundation works together with farmers, campaigners, supporters, shoppers, civil society and commercial partners to shine a light on the problems they face, and how we can all be part of the solution.
The principle is simple: set and pay a fair price for goods, ensure standards for fair and safe working conditions and pay a premium on sales that goes back to the producer communities.
