What is a Fairtrade certified producer group?

It is either an association of farmers or a company dependent on hired labor that produces one or more commodities for which there are Fairtrade Standards and that has been certified to meet those Standards. Once certified, they are added to the Fairtrade product register and registered companies can buy from them under Fairtrade terms. Some Fairtrade certified producer groups are able to sell their entire production under Fairtrade terms, while others sell only a very small percentage and require more buyers to purchase on Fairtrade terms. It is only by increasing the amount sold as Fairtrade that producer groups are able to receive a steady stream of additional income to improve their lives.

What is the Fairtrade premium?

They decide democratically as a committee how to invest the Premium. You can read more about how farmers spend their Premium here.
