Women to the front: how Fairtrade addresses gender equity
Partnering with small-scale farmers and workers for sustainable trade and lasting impact
Fairtrade changes the way trade works through better prices, decent working conditions, and a fairer deal for farmers and workers in the countries where our commodities like coffee, cocoa, and bananas are from. 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 to do better and connects shoppers with the people who produce their goods.
