      • Aim of Fair Trade:
      • Market access under fair terms, particularly for small and marginalized producers from DCs.
      • Means to achieve this aim:
      • Better trading conditions for more than 1.5 million small producers and poor workers,
      • Work towards greater trade justice (advocacy, campaigning).
      FAIRTRADE LABELLING ORGANIZATION INTERNATIONAL NETWORK OF EUROPEAN WORLD SHOPS
      • Fair Trade products:
      Handicrafts and processed goods: Jewellery, textiles, sportsballs, baskets, wooden products, statutes, ceramics… Food: Coffee, bananas, sugar, tea, cotton, spices, fresh fruit, juice …
    • Commercialisation of FT products:
      • 1. Direct trading relationship between Fair Trade producer/exporter and Fair Trade importer/retailer,
      • 2. Labelling route: conventional companies acquire Fairtrade label for products, bought and traded under fair conditions.
      • Fair Trade standards must be met to ensure compliance with Fair Trade principles.
      FAIRTRADE LABELLING ORGANIZATION INTERNATIONAL NETWORK OF EUROPEAN WORLD SHOPS

      FAIRTRADE LABELLING ORGANIZATION INTERNATIONAL NETWORK OF EUROPEAN WORLD SHOPS

    • Capacity building and empowerment
    • Work towards greater trade justice
      • Fair Trade: a growing market
      • Worldwide annual growth rates: around 40%
      • Around 2 billion Euros spent on FT in 2007
      • 1 of 4 bananas sold in UK is Fair Trade
      • 80% of Belgian consumers recognize Fair Trade
      • Tate & Lyle switch all own label sugar to FT
      • Cocoa & cotton sales doubled between 2005 & 2006
      • 90% of bananas in Eastern Caribbean: Fair Trade
      • But: FT producers sell only 20% under fair terms and millions of poor producers do not yet have access to fair trading and working conditions.
      FAIRTRADE LABELLING ORGANIZATION INTERNATIONAL NETWORK OF EUROPEAN WORLD SHOPS
      • Conclusions
      • Fair Trade is a tool for market access under fair conditions for small producers,
      • To participate in Fair Trade, standards must be met by producers and traders/importers,
      • Fair Trade market has a huge potential; depends on the demand from consumers and company/public purchasers,
      • Public policy support to Fair Trade is needed to support growth, in EU and ACP countries.
