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.

www.fta.org.au

DISCLAIMER: While we have sought to include only businesses that stock Fair Trade products or that operate according to Fair Trade principles, no guarantee or formal endorsement is given on any listed business in regards to their Fair Trade operations other than those Fair Trader endorsed businesses, WFTO member organisations or Fairtrade certified products which carry the Fairtrade label.

Why Fair Trade? Fair Trade promotes trade justice and reduces inequality From producer through to consumer, Fair Trade ensures the shopping choices we make to enrich our lives also have a positive impact on the lives of others and the environment.

Shashista, has been a jewellery maker for 7 years in Old Delhi. Matr Boomie has been working with this jewellery making community in a low income area in North India since 2009. This community has grown from 40 artisans to over 140 artisans since Matr Boomie started working with them, and with wages at 30% above conventional market rate. Source: Matr Boomie Impact Report

Fair Trade fights poverty and empowers communities Disadvantaged artisans, workers and farmers living in developing countries have more direct access to markets through Fair Trade wholesalers and retailers. Producers create their own sustainable livelihoods through employment and regular income. Skilled workers learn to improve working conditions for themselves and those they employ to create a sustainable future for everyone in their community.
