Choosing Fairtrade coffee means helping coffee farmers around the world to get a fair deal.
Visit our Fairtrade MVPs page to learn about Canadian leaders in Fairtrade, or consult our interactive list of registered brands and companies that sell Fairtrade certified products in Canada. Contact them to find out where to buy in your area.
By choosing Fairtrade coffee you ensure farmers get a fair price for their beans and an additional Premium to invest in schools, and reforestation and agricultural improvements, for example.
This means that they can improve their working, social and community lives and protect the environment they live in.
And with Fairtrade Canada, every bean can be traced back to the farmers’ cooperative. So you get a great cup of coffee that you know has adhered to high ethical standards, and one that has directly benefited the farmer who produced it.
