Fairtrade works with farmers and workers so they can improve their living standards, invest in their
communities and businesses, and protect our shared environment.
Fairtrade achieves this by rallying a global community of millions – farmers and workers, supply chain partners, brands, retailers, shoppers, schools, government – to pay fair prices and uphold fair production standards and practices.
Fair prices provide an immediate lifeline for farmers and workers struggling with low incomes and disadvantaged by global trade.
What does Fairtrade do? Fairtrade works with farming co-operatives, businesses and governments to make trade fair.
Ever wondered how many farmers and workers are involved with Fairtrade? Or how the Fairtrade Premium is used? Here’s a snapshot from our latest data.
There are over 1.66 million farmers and workers in 1,411 producer organisations across the Fairtrade system. Use the map below to explore.
