Please choose Fairtrade where possible.

Fairtrade Australia and New Zealand says their system benefits farmers and producers in the developing world through:

  • a fair and stable price for their produce
  • security of long-term contracts
  • investment in local community development
  • improved working conditions (the standards also prohibit child labour)
  • environmentally sustainable farming methods
  • support in gaining the knowledge and skills needed to operate successfully in the global economy.
