OUR PATH TO FAIR TRADE

WFTO and its members believe that the path to Fair Trade means changing the practices in the supply chain to follow the 10 Principles of Fair Trade. To be able to deliver the promise of Fair Trade, practices from the production to sale of products should pass the global Fair Trade Standard set by WFTO. Fair Trade scrutiny should not only focus on the production sphere but also on the buying behavior of organisations. This is because for WFTO the burden of proving Fair Trade compliance covers the entire supply chain, and is not the sole responsibility of producers.
