About Fair Trade
Map & Directions
Fair trade organizations are part of a global movement devoted to ensuring that people are fairly compensated for their work and guaranteeing a fair deal for producers in all regions of the world.
While coventional commerce nets the worker one to two percent or less of retail, fair-trade organizations ensure fifteen to twenty percent. As a non-profit structure, a fair trade business is open to public accountability.
