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.

Read our DEI statement.

Fairtrade creates strong relationships. It makes us become like a big family and I really appreciate that.
