What is Fairtrade?
By buying Fairtrade products whenever they can consumers have the power, through the choices they make, to have a positive impact on the lives of producers around the world.
The FAIRTRADE Mark is an independent consumer label which appears on products as a guarantee that disadvantaged producers are getting a better deal. Several million farmers, workers and their families across the developing world benefit from the international Fairtrade system.
There are a number of short films available to view on line which help to explain the concept of Fairtrade and how it enhances the lives of those involved in its projects. We have featured one of these short films in our Gallery but there are many other films that include interviews with actual producers. To view these films click here.
