Fair Trade

Fair trade refers to a process or system that seeks to help producers and growers in developing nations create fair and equitable relationships with companies that buy their products.

Fairtrade products may be more expensive, with better working and environmental conditions for farmers, workers, or producers accounting for the extra cost.

To use the fair trade label, companies must be certified by specific bodies such as Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International, World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), Network of European Worldshops, and European Fair Trade Association (EFTA).

Coffee beans are often a product to which the fair trade label is applied to.
