Behind the items we consume every day are farmers struggling to survive and support their families. Living in poor, rural regions of the world where paved roads and Internet access are rare, small-scale farmers who produce these items have little ability to negotiate fair prices for their products.
Fair Trade Certified products are now available on the shelves of more than 100,000 retail locations in the North America, resulting in millions of dollars of community development premiums for farmers and workers all over the world. Along with fair wages, farmers and workers receive these premiums to invest in community development projects.
