What do Fairtrade Standards cover:
|Price: The Fairtrade Minimum Price and Fairtrade Premium drive real change today. Fairtrade workers and farmers are given a safety net that protects them from low prices for their crops.|
|Environment: While you can’t protect the planet without protecting its people first, rigorous Fairtrade Standards support farmers to protect the environment and Fairtrade Premium is enabling them to invest in climate resilience and adaptation.|
|Premium: Fairtrade workers and farmers choose how they spend the Premium which they can use to make their farms and communities stronger. It also enables them to invest in different ways of making money, so they are less reliant on the unpredictable cocoa market.|
|Women’s empowerment: Fairtrade is also supporting more women cocoa farmers to take the reins and stand tall alongside men. Fairtrade Standards make sure that they have a strong voice in their community, are represented in decision-making and benefit from Fairtrade. We know that independent income in the hands of women brings positive change to communities even faster.|
There are many ways which you can get involved:
Take the 90kg challenge
Together with our supplier of Kilombero Rice , we are asking schools, churches and other organisations to sell 90kg of fair trade rice, this is the amount of rice sold that would enable a Malawian farmer to pay for a year’s basic secondary education for one child.
