Fairtrade is a global movement with a strong and active presence in the UK, represented by the Fairtrade Foundation.
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.
The Fairtrade Foundation is an independent non-profit organisation that focuses on four key areas of work in the UK:
- We license the use of the FAIRTRADE Mark in the UK
- We help to grow demand for Fairtrade products and empower producers to sell to traders and retailers
- We find new ways of working with our partners to support producer organisations and their networks
- We raise public awareness of the need for Fairtrade and the significant role of Fairtrade in making trade fair
