The Fairtrade system works to empower small-scale farmers and workers marginalized by trade.
Beyond certifying Fairtrade products and setting Standards, we also offer direct and indirect support so that producers and their organizations can increase their social and environmental sustainability.
Fairtrade’s Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) program doesn’t just support internal learning and improvement.
It also helps to provide an evidence base for measuring our impact, based on Fairtrade’s ‘Theory of Change’, making sure we have the right data and information on what difference Fairtrade makes and how.
It is in this way that you know that the FAIRTRADE Mark represents a lasting commitment to making trade work for the most vulnerable producers.
