What is Fair trade?
Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade which aims to improve livelihoods for producer farmer groups and various artisans. It’s based on a transparent partnership between producers and consumers. Fairtrade offers marginal producers a better deal through improved trade practices which are seldom practised in conventional trade forms.
