How Fairtrade Works
Farmers and workers receive a Minimum Price to ensure sustainable livelihoods, and a Fairtrade Premium, an additional sum that they invest as they choose in order to develop their communities or businesses.
Producer networks own 50% of Fairtrade, which ensures that decision making is shared equally.
Fairtrade Standards ensure safe working conditions, gender equity, and prohibit child and forced labour.
Farmers and workers are educated on how to adapt to the impacts of climate change and mitigate other environmental problems like biodiversity loss, soil degradation, and excessive water consumption.
