Are you committed to justice for the world’s poorest people? Many developing countries are unable to compete in the global market because of unjust structures of trade. The Fairtrade logo guarantess that the growers and producers are paid a fair price for their product. It means it costs a little bit more – but it literally saves lives.
Fairtrade shows that trade can be a means out of poverty if the conditions are right. Seven million disadvantaged producers, workers and their families are benefiting from Fairtrade, but they and millions more still remain at the mercy of unfair international trade rules. That’s why we need to do more than buy Fairtrade products – we also need to campaign for trade justice.
The fact that Fairtrade has allowed producers to transform their lives, also shows that the current system of trade is not working.
