Fairtrade is a simple way to make a difference through our everyday choices. It's about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. Fairtrade aims to enable the poorest farmers and workers to improve their position and have more control over their lives.
The Fairtrade mark means that:
- A fair price is paid to the producers.
- Workers on farms get rights under Fairtrade, such as decent wages.
- The producers receive an additional Fairtrade premium, an extra amount of money, to invest in their communities.
- Producers in co-operatives always get a democratic say in decisions - women included.
