Fairtrade works to benefit small-scale farmers, who are amongst the most marginalized groups globally to enable them to improve their livelihoods and reach their potential. Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, fair terms of trade for farmers and better livelihoods. The aim is to improve food security and vulnerability of farmers. It’s about supporting the development of thriving farming communities that have more control over their futures and protecting the environment in which they live and work. The Fairtrade Minimum Price provides a safety net for farmers which can mean they are less vulnerable to price volatility. Fairtrade Premium investments can mean that farmers benefit from services that they may otherwise have had to pay for, such as fertilizer and school fees.
