Why Fairtrade is important

There are many reasons to support Fairtrade:

  • to ensure that products are made in safe, healthy working conditions
  • farmers and producers will receive a fair price and have a voice in how their workplace is run
  • food will often taste better, as the farmers are involved and invested in the entire production process, with crops grown and harvested in smaller quantities
  • it helps to support communities, allowing Fairtrade farmers to invest earnings in housing, healthcare and schools
  • it supports sustainable practices that help to reduce our environmental footprint
