It is all about making sure that products exported internationally from “developing” countries to “developed” countries are produced under fair conditions. That means promoting the payment of fair prices, safe and healthy working conditions and responsible environmental practices. Production Line: Advantages of Fair-Trade • To the farmer, Fair-Trade is seen as a way to getting better prices guaranteed with a Minimum Price and Fair-Trade premium. • Fair-Trade makes it possible for farmers to cover their production costs, make profits and be access the necessary tools, inputs and

This is partly done by planting and replanting with shade trees, mulching for soil and water. • We also believe that Fair-Trade is the answer to bringing sanity in the coffee sector because every actor in the supply chain must be transparent. • Farmers believe that by joining Fair-Trade, they are assured of organizational building to which they have a sense of belonging for social and economic gains. • Fair-Trade is also seen as a movement that is socially influencing the behaviour of the mainstream market players for the betterment of the farmer within the conventional trade. Why Should We Buy Fair Trade? We should buy Fair-Trade for several reasons one being Unfair wages And to make it even worse, the farmers in Africa and India who made that coffee are getting a tiny percentage of the fortune the sellers are making. To help, you can just buy fair trade items. Fair trade give the farmers the right amount of money.
