FSP : une nouvelle démarche de certification qui ne répond pas aux exigences du Commerce Equitable !

FSP : une nouvelle démarche de certification qui ne répond pas aux exigences du Commerce Equitable ! | Fair trade | Scoop.it

En novembre dernier, Fairtrade International (FTI) a lancé un nouveau programme de certification (FairTrade Sourcing Program) avec la création de 3 nouveaux labels « ingrédients » et non plus « produits ».

 

Le nouveau système de FTI répond à une demande croissante de produits issus du commerce équitable des multinationales qui y voient une belle opportunité de proposer des produits portant un label de commerce équitable, et donc communiquer sur leur pratique sociétale, à moindre frais et sans en accepter toutes les contraintes, sans remettre en cause leur fonctionnement et leurs marges.

BioEmarket The Global Organic E-Marketplace's curator insight, December 23, 2013 11:48 AM

Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade based on a partnership between producers and traders, businesses and consumers.


Fairtrade offers producers a better deal and improved terms of trade. It allows them the opportunity to improve their lives and invest in their future, their environment and their communities. Fairtrade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty and ensure environmental sustainability through their everyday buying decisions.


Fairtrade is the world’s most recognised ethical label that aims to connect disadvantaged producers with businesses and consumers at fair prices. They have been working with farmers and workers in India for over 19 years to supply Fairtrade products to the international markets, returning nearly Rs. 20 additional crores to Indian farmers and workers in the last year alone.

 

Whether you’re a farmer, a consumer, a civil society organisation, a retailer or a business, there is a place for you in their growing movement.


Please take the time to browse these pages to find out more about the FAIRTRADE Mark, and what it means.

Visualizing Fair Trade Coffee (infographics)

Visualizing Fair Trade Coffee (infographics) | Fair trade | Scoop.it

The fair trade certification has entered a period of major change. The recent departure of Fair Trade USA from the international certification system led by Fair Trade International (formerly FLO), and its decision to develop separate US standards that permit certification of plantation-produced coffee, cocoa, and other crops, has thrown the meaning of the US fair trade label into question. The recent appearance of a new certification—The Institute for Marketecology (IMO) “Fair For Life” label—has made the panorama even more complex. These developments follow a decade of struggles within the fair trade movement over the nature of its relationship to large (often transnational) corporate firms, some of which have contributed to the dramatic growth of fair trade sales.
