CHARTER OF FAIR TRADE PRINCIPLES

The Charter of Fair Trade Principles is a single international reference point for Fair Trade, adopted by World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) and Fairtrade International in 2009. It provides concise explanation of Fair Trade principles and the two main routes by which these principles can be implemented. It also sets out our common vision, definition of Fair Trade, and core principles. WFTO adopts such principles through the 10 Principles of Fair Trade and prescribes these principles to our member organisations.

The Charter is available in English, Spanish, French, Dutch, German and Slovak.
