Recognising Fair Trade In an age of globalised markets and unsubstantiated ‘fair washing’, it is increasingly vital for Fair Trade claims to be independently verified. Below is a guide to three trustworthy systems.

Fair Traders of Australia Endorsement The Fair Traders of Australia (FToA) endorsement from the Fair Trade Association enables small businesses, with Fair Trade at the core of their mission, to strengthen and validate their commitment to the 10 Principles of Fair Trade in their business practices. To find out more, visit fta.org.au/fair-traders.

World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) Guarantee The WFTO focuses on both social enterprise and Fair Trade. The WFTO Guarantee System is the only international verification model focused on social enterprises that put the interests of workers, farmers and artisans first. To find out more, visit wfto.com.

Fairtrade Mark The Fairtrade Mark is a product certification label. Businesses can use the Fairtrade Mark on products that meet the international Fairtrade standards. Common Fairtrade certified products include chocolate, coffee, tea and cotton. To find out more, visit fairtrade.com.au.
