The FAIRTRADE Mark is the best known and most trusted ethical mark amongst UK consumers.

  • Media Volunteer

    The Fairtrade Foundation is a rapidly growing organisation which licenses the consumer label the FAIRTRADE Mark in the UK on products that meet international standards of Fairtrade. Our unique independent guarantee is helping producers in the South and consumers in the North to challenge conventional trading systems that condemn millions to poverty and hardship.
