Fair trade challenges the conventional model of trade and offers progressive and sustainable alternatives for thousands of producers and rural communities worldwide. This system ensures that producers can provide for their own basic food, housing, health and education needs.

When you buy products with the FAIRTRADE label, you are ensuring that the producer has been paid the minimum price required to cover the necessary costs of production and still make a reasonable profit.
