Choosing Fairtrade is choosing the world you want.

But how? Fairtrade works to rebalance trade, making it a system rooted in partnership and mutual respect rather than exploitation.

It’s about businesses, shoppers, farmers and workers all partnering together so we can all experience the benefits of trade.

How Fairtrade works

Fairtrade puts more money into the hands of farmers and workers through a unique pricing model, sets and monitors rigorous standards at every step of the supply chain, supports producers through local and regional expert networks, and creates demand for ethical goods in countries like the US.

This shift makes a difference

Over the past 30 years, making the terms of trade more fair has had a tangible impact on farming communities around the world.
