Fairtrade certified means trust
The Fairtrade Mark is the most recognised ethical label in the world. Our network brings together nearly two million farmers and workers across the planet. Join our global community of brands, manufacturers and producers dedicated to making trade fair at every step of the supply chain.
Fairtrade is good for business
Shoppers are demanding more. They are more conscious than ever of transparency and sustainability in the sourcing of their food and their products. The best way to provide this is through trusted, independent, third party certification – that’s Fairtrade. Putting the Fairtrade Mark on your products, stocking Fairtrade goods or serving them to your customers demonstrates your ethical commitments, has a positive impact on commodity producers and gets you closer to your supply chain.
Fairtrade is good for the world
Fairtrade Certification is a simple way to prioritise people and the planet. By becoming Fairtrade Certified, you are leveraging your investment for a more sustainable future and joining an inspiring network of ethically-minded brands.
Mandating workers' rights
Promoting gender equality
gender equality is vital
Our gender strategy supports farming organisations in tackling the unequal power relationships that hold women back in the workplace and in society. We focus on increasing women and girls’ human, social, financial and physical capital to rebalance power structures between people of different genders.
Fairtrade producer groups commit to:
- No discrimination on the basis of gender or marital status
- Zero tolerance of behavior that is sexually intimidating, abusive or exploitative
- No testing for pregnancy when recruiting workers
- Programs to support historically marginalised groups like women
- Developing a gender policy, over time

Amplifying sustainable farming practices
Climate change is not fair
Farmers and rural communities have contributed the least to climate change but are often affected the most.
Climate studies predict that by 2050 coffee, tea, cocoa and cotton will be so severely affected that production in some areas will even disappear. Millions of farmers and workers depend on international trade and these crops in particular to survive.
Fairtrade cannot solve the issue of climate change, but we do support farmers with tools, practices and resources to become more resilient.
We do this through:
- Fairtrade Premium
- Environmental Standards
- Fairtrade Carbon Credits

"Fairtrade is about making sure people get their fair share of the pie. The whole concept of Fairtrade goes to the heart of our values and sense of right and wrong. Nobody wants to buy something that was made by exploiting somebody else."
