Fair Trade

According to the World Fair Trade Organization, "Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers.

Fair Trade organizations have a clear commitment to Fair Trade as the principal core of their mission. They, backed by consumers, are engaged actively in supporting producers, awareness raising and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade." They can be recognized by the WFTO logo.

Fair Trade is more than just trading:

It proves that greater justice in world trade is possible.

It highlights the need for change in the rules and practice of conventional trade and shows how a successful business can also put people first.

It is a tangible contribution to the fight against poverty, climate change and economic crisis.

We are in the process of acquiring the Fair Trade certification, but we already employ all of the criteria that defines fair trade. We are not only concerned about our customers, but also our suppliers and producers that make up TheFOB family.
