Fair Trade promotes greater justice through the act of trade.

Fair Trade is an innovative, market-based approach to sustainable development. Fair Trade works proactively towards sustainable development of Artisans & Agriculturalists by offering fair and just trading avenues, enabling communities to play an active part in their own development.

Through fair trade, consumers make a choice to purchase and support marginalized producers and workers. It provides a world of business in which third world producers can have access to international markets, receive fair prices for their work and develop sustainable business capacity to support their families and create a reliable marketplace future.

The World Fair Trade Organisation : Fair Trade Organization Mark (FTO Mark), this identifies organizations that practice Fair Trade.
