How we work

At Fairtrade, we care not only about what we do but also how we do it. We make an intentional effort to continuously learn how to work and collaborate more effectively to reach our collective goals of increasing awareness of Fairtrade among shoppers, growing the number of US certified brands and raising the voices of producers.

We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion

Fairtrade America recognizes that being inclusive is about action. Therefore, we are not only advocating for justice, equality and non-discrimination for farmers and workers in low- and middle-income countries, but also within our own organization and with commercial partners, governments and the communities where Fairtrade products are produced and purchased.
