  • 1. © Fairtrade 2012 © Vipul Kulkarni Strong Producers, Strong Future Highlights from Fairtrade International’s 2013-14 Annual Report
  • 2. © Fairtrade 2013 “Fairtrade is about empowerment and long-term development, as farmers and workers transform deeply ingrained problems step-by-step to build a better future for themselves, their families and communities. As we tackle one issue we find others underneath needing attention. Sometimes these challenges seem insurmountable. But I believe the diversity of knowledge, experience and partnerships in our movement is one of our main strengths, as is our commitment to involve farmers and workers actively in decision-taking, planning and implementation.” Marike de Peña, Director of a banana cooperative in the Dominican Republic, Chair of CLAC (Network of Fairtrade Producers of Latin America and the Caribbean) and Chair of the Fairtrade International Board.

More than 70,000 people signed the petition. “If we are looking for inspiration on how to make a global partnership work we need to look to the Fair Trade movement itself, bringing together the private sector, civil society and local authorities to empower small producers and agricultural workers.

  • 14. © Fairtrade 2013 Assessing Fairtrade’s Impact Over the past year a series of research projects evaluating the impacts of Fairtrade have published their findings. This year, research highlighted challenging conditions for casual laborers on small-scale farms and the need for greater market access for many producers. Fairtrade is already taking some steps in both areas, including a new project addressing casual labour on small farms and new models and strategies on the market side to bring more opportunities for farmers to sell on Fairtrade terms. Fairtrade International 2013-14 Annual Report Highlights
  • 15. © Fairtrade 2013 © Nathalie Bertrams TWIN Trading researched the experiences of women in supply chains, whose crucial role is often unrecognized, unpaid and invisible. However it found that women in Fairtrade producer organizations tend to have more opportunities than their unorganized counterparts.
