Fair Trade Certified

« Back to Glossary Index

Fair Trade is a marketing system for small scale coffee farmers who belong to producer cooperatives. It is not available for plantation owners.

The Fair Trade certification guarantees a floor price regardless of the vagaries of the marketplace. It also supports the group-up practice of democracy, as cooperatives operate on a one-farm, one-vote decision making process. For more detailed information go to fairtrade.org .
