What is Fair Trade

Fair Trade is a movement: a socially innovative response to market failure – the failure of the traditional trade system to incorporate fair access to markets, wage justice and environmental standards.

The origins of the Fair Trade movement can be traced back 50 years where, rooted in trade justice and human solidarity, it established alternative methods of supplying products with a shared understanding of fairness and trading partnerships.

Fair Trade products (craft and commodities) allows us, as consumers, to support trade justice through our purchasing choices.

Why Fair Trade

The benefits of international trade are not shared fairly by everyone in the world. Small producers have limited access to market and price information.

As a result, they are often dependent on middlemen and receive smaller returns for their work. Many plantation and factory workers endure low pay, unsafe working environments and poor living conditions.

Fair Trade promotes trade equality and justice. From producer through to consumer -- it is about ensuring the choices we make have a positive impact on our lives, the lives of others and the environment.

Fair Trade . Org

Fta.org is the home for the Australian & New Zealand Fair Trade organization. Our site is designed to promote Fair Trade and the discussion about working standards world wide. At the FTA we have a strong social media presence and believe that this is the way to expand the Fair Trade mentality world wide.

CottonWe have started reporting cotton volumes in lint, which makes our figures much more accurate and useful. We will soon be launching our new cotton model, which will allow significant growth in large mainstream markets from 2013 onwards.

97 percent of Fairtrade cotton comes from India and West & Central Africa.

Estimated Fairtrade Premium paid to cotton producers in 2011: € 1.1 million.

SugarAs sugar is an ingredient in so many different Fairtrade products, the actual sales figure is probably much higher than indicated. Market share of bagged sugar will reach 42 percent in the UK in 2012 and Tate & Lyle has become the world’s biggest Fairtrade Premium payer.

80 percent of Fairtrade sugar comes from Africa’s Least Developed countries, where sugar is often one of the most important sources of income.

Estimated Fairtrade Premium paid to sugar producers in 2011: € 7.4 million.

TeaFairtrade tea continued to experience healthy growth. Switches by supermarkets in the UK and the Netherlands were the main drivers. There’s also increasing interest in herbal teas such as rooibos.

About 70 percent of Fairtrade tea comes from East Africa.

Estimated Fairtrade Premium paid to tea producers in 2011: € 4.6 million.

Coffee

Growth has continued strongly across continental Europe, particularly in the out of home sector (cafés, restaurants and public procurement).

Latin America is the main source of Fairtrade coffee. However, around half of new applicants are from Africa and Asia.

In our 2011 coffee standard review we doubled the Premium to 20 USD cents/lb.

Estimated Fairtrade Premium paid to coffee producers in 2011: € 28.9 million

Bananas

Sales grew well in emerging markets such as Australia and New Zealand and remained stable in mature ones such as Switzerland, where market share has reached 55 percent. Worldwide a number of retailers have made 100 percent switches. Colombia, Dominican Republic, Peru and Ecuador are the main producing countries.Estimated Fairtrade Premium paid to banana producers in 2011: € 13.9 million.

Cocoa

Existing cocoa partners are increasing their commitments to Fairtrade and we are forming partnerships with new ones. The Cadbury Dairy Milk launch in South Africa and the new collaboration with Mars were two of the highlights.

The majority of Fairtrade cocoa comes from West Africa, but we also have many new producer groups for speciality cocoa in Latin America.

Estimated Fairtrade Premium paid to cocoa producers in 2011: € 6.9 million

Meet the Fairtrade Farmers

Buying Fairtrade Certified products makes a real

difference for the Fairtrade farmers and workers in

developing countries. Fairtrade means a better future

for producers, workers, their families and communities

in these countries.

In addition to providing a fair and stable price for their

products, Fairtrade is helping farmers, workers and their

communities build better roads, access health care and

send their kids to school. Fairtrade also enables them to

grow and develop their businesses ensuring they can

improve life for their families and communities well into

the future.

To learn more about the real impact Fairtrade is

having on farmers’ lives in developing countries visit

our partners websites Fairtrade International and the

Fairtrade Foundation.
