The 100% world change variety.
The WFTO is a global authority on Fair Trade, not because we say so, but because our members make it so.
Membership of the WFTO is limited to organizations that demonstrate a 100% Fair Trade commitment and apply its 10 Principles of Fair Trade. WFTO Members are not just the pioneers of the movement but the innovators of the market.
The WFTO represents Fair Traders from grassroots through to the G8 and is the authentic voice of Fair Trade, having driven the movement for 20 years. It is the only global network whose members represent the Fair Trade chain from production to sale.
In May 2013, during the Annual General Meeting of the WFTO in Rio de Janeiro, the membership approved the Guarantee System that enables the use of a label on products. For more information, visit the WFTO Guarantee system page.
WFTO, the World Fair Trade Organization, has a vision of a world in which trade structures and practices have been transformed to work in favour of the poor and promote sustainable development and justice.
WFTO’s mission is to enable producers to improve their livelihoods and communities through Fair Trade. WFTO will be the global network and advocate for Fair Trade, ensuring producer voices are heard. The interests of producers, especially small farmers and artisans, should be the main focus in all the policies, governance, structures and decision making within the WFTO.
