In this emerging world of “green” shopping, where does the term “Fair Trade” fit in? You likely have seen it appear on packages of coffees, teas, chocolates and other specialty foods. Here are a few Fair Trade basics to help you make informed choices on these products:
Fair Trade describes a system of equitable treatment of farm workers and producers worldwide, with the goal of ensuring a fair price for their products, such as coffee or chocolate. For example, coffee brokers and other middlemen in the coffee business gain large profits by marginalizing growers and paying minimally for their coffee. Fair Trade coffee ensures growers get a fair price for their goods, which covers growing and harvest expenses, and also connects growers with cooperatives for selling their goods on the global market. This in turn helps eliminate the middleman and retains profits for the growers.
Who benefits from Fair Trade?
Several organizations oversee Fair Trade terms and conditions, such as FLO (Fair Trade Labeling Organizations International). You can learn more on their Web site: fairtrade.net. Look for the blue and yellow seal that shows you’re selecting a Fair Trade product.
