What is Fair Trade?
Fair Trade is an alternative trade system that ensures that people along every step of the supply chain receive fair wages and are treated with dignity. Fair Trade also ensure that producers take steps to preserve the environment and that some of the profit is invested back into the community. Buying fair trade products is a way to respect the producers of the food and work towards ending extreme poverty by creating a more just world.

Current Fair Trade Products include coffee, tea, sugar, flowers, sports balls, clothing, handicrafts, vanilla, chocolate, wine, olive oil and fruit.
