Fair Trade

A fair trade certification on a product ensures consumers that cooperative farm workers have been paid a living wage and labored under safe conditions. The fair trade premium goes toward a workers’ collective to provide education, healthcare, and pension benefits. In addition, fair trade farming techniques must be sustainable. Through purchasing fair trade certified products, consumers can help revive developing countries, mitigate the exploitation of workers, and promote environmental sustainability.
