aims to help producers in developing countries to make better trading conditions and promote sustainability. It advocates the payment of a higher price to farmers as well as higher social and environmental standards. Clipper Tea
and Alter Eco
are examples of our fair trade brands.
Nowadays, there are several recognised fair trade certifiers
, including Fair Trade International
. This is an umbrella organisation whose mission is to set the fair trade standards, support, inspect and certify disadvantaged producers, and harmonise the fair trade message across the movement.
