Use Fairtrade Products
There are so many producers in countries all over the world that are not getting a fair price for their products, or children working on farms and in fields. Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, no child labour, fair terms of trade and a guarantee that the price paid for food will never fall lower than the market price. On top of the minimum price, farmers receive the Fairtrade premium to invest in their communities and businesses. The standards also require farmers to protect the environment and farm in a sustainable way – what’s not to love!
Increasingly customers want Fairtrade choices; the logo is one of the most recognized logos around, so providing these products is a real marketing tool too, as well as giving you the satisfaction that it’s the right thing to do.
