WHAT IS FAIRTRADE AND WHY SHOULD I CARE?

Behind products on the supermarket shelves and in stores are people: farmers, workers – families. Millions of them suffer from extreme poverty, poor working conditions and inequality. Fairtrade changes this. Support Fairtrade, change lives.

Fairtrade's approach enables farmers and workers to have more control over their lives and decide how to invest in their future.

As a leader in the global movement to make trade fair, Fairtrade supports and challenges businesses and governments and connects farmers and workers with the people who buy their products.

By choosing Fairtrade, people can create change through their everyday actions. A product with the Fairtrade Mark means producers and businesses have met internationally agreed standards which have been independently certified.

Farmers and workers have a strong voice at every level of Fairtrade, from how they invest in and run their local organisations to having an equal say in Fairtrade’s global decision-making.

HOW FAIRTRADE WORKS

Fairtrade is a simple way to make a difference to the lives of the people who grow and create the things we love. It’s all about making trade fair.

What is Fairtrade? from Fairtrade International on Vimeo.

1. Fair for producers

Small-scale farmers and workers are among the most marginalised by the global trade system. At Fairtrade, they are at the heart of everything we do. Unique among certification schemes, producers have an equal say in how Fairtrade is run and are included in all our decision-making.

For farmers and workers, Fairtrade means:

  • Prices that aim to cover the average costs of producing their crop sustainably – a vital safety net when market prices drop
  • The Fairtrade Premium – an extra sum of money paid on top of the selling price to invest in business or community projects of their choice
  • Decent working conditions and a ban on discrimination, forced labour and child labour
  • Access to advance credit ahead of harvest time
  • Being able to plan more for the future with more security and stronger relationships with buyers
2. Fair for Consumers

Consumers are a vital part of Fairtrade. Every Fairtrade product you choose or campaign you support enables farmers and workers to invest in their lives and take more control of their future.

  • A product with the Fairtrade Mark means the producers and businesses have met the stringent Fairtrade social, economic and environmental standards.
  • According to a 2021 GlobeScan study of consumers in 15 countries, more than 60 percent of consumers are familiar with the Fairtrade Mark and of those, 80 percent say they have a positive perception of brands that carry it.
3. The Fairtrade System

The Fairtrade system is made up of:

  • Three regional producer networks that represent farmers and workers in Africa and the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean
  • Over 25 national Fairtrade organisations and marketing organisations that market and promote Fairtrade products in consumer countries
  • Fairtrade International, the umbrella NGO that creates the internationally agreed Fairtrade Standards and coordinates Fairtrade worldwide
  • FLOCERT, the main independent certifier for Fairtrade, which inspects producers and traders to ensure they comply with Fairtrade Standards

FAIRTRADE COFFEE FARMERS OF KOPERSAI BAITUL QIRADH BABURRAYYAN

Some of the best coffee in the world is grown on the steep, wooded slopes of Central Aceh’s highland in Northern Sumatra. The tropical climate, fertile soils and high altitudes of this mountainous region provide the perfect conditions for Arabica coffee.

This is where Fairtrade coffee farmers of Koperasi Baitul Qiradh Baburrayyan (KBQB) founded their coffee business in 1995.

“We used to do coffee farming traditionally, like our forefathers, but now we have become professionals. The cooperative taught us how to do organic farming based on knowledge and skills. This knowledge helps us increase our productivity and quality,” says Sobur from KBQB. - Image © Nathalie Bertrams
