When you are doing the weekly shop you may come across products carrying the Fairtrade Mark or perhaps you are already a Fairtrade supporter and actually seek out these products. Fairtrade products include Tea, Coffee, Cocoa, Chocolate, Sugar, Bananas and Wine.
Buying products with the Fairtrade Mark, means that you are helping to secure better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.
Fairtrade is a global movement which is represented in the UK by the Fairtrade Foundation. This is a charity that licenses the Fairtrade Mark, a guarantee that products sold in the UK have been produced in accordance with internationally agreed Fairtrade standards.
