Fair Trade Australia

Fair Trade Australia is supporting farmers and worker communities to have better working conditions by improving terms of trade, so they will have more control of their futures and protecting the neighbourhood where they live and work.

For consumers to purchase goods with the Fair Trade mark, they are contributing to supporting farmers and worker communities to have a better life. The Fair Trade mark itself indicates that each product only uses ingredients that are produced by small-scale farmers, which already follow the Fair Trade social, economic and environmental international standards.

The standards are including protection to children and workers’ rights, environmental conservation, Fair Trade minimum price and Fair Trade premium that directly for supporting local communities and business development. So far, Fair Trade Australia has been contributing to:

-A fair price

-long-term contract

-Investment in local community development

-Improving working conditions

-Environmentally sustainable farming methods

-Support in gaining the knowledge and skills in the global economy
