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.

Jonas tho's curator insight, March 6, 2014 3:05 AM

Due to the massive population in India, and it's brutaly unfair caste system,  it's no suprise child labour is an issue. We as consunmers have to choose not to by products made by children.

Marte Sødal's curator insight, March 6, 2014 3:06 AM

This video shows us an overwiev of how the system of child labour in India works. It tells us about the ignorance of the community, as well as the denial of childhood. To me it opened my eyes to all the differences there are in the world and to the fact that I should appreciate my life as it is.

Magne Aune's curator insight, March 6, 2014 3:27 AM

It is shocking to read about the enormous number of children in labour. This text feels is written in Apple's favor and I believe that this is a text about Apple washing its hands. I do believe that Apple was aware of the child labour, but exposed it themselves before others could.

Marte Sødal's curator insight, March 6, 2014 3:29 AM

This article describes the situation of companies utilizing children in their production. It also tells about how no company wishes to be associated with underage labour as a subject. This article gave a larger view of the situation how the companies and producers think towards the situation, which made a bigger impact on me.
