Fair Trade

Fair Trade represents an alternative approach to conventional international trade. It is a trading partnership which supports sustainable development for excluded and disadvantaged producers from developing nations.   Fair Trade Manitoba (FTM) defines fair trade as an alternative approach to trading that:

  • Promotes global economic justice, dignity and environmental sustainability through equitable trading relationships between northern importers and southern producers.
  • Is based on fair trade principles as adopted by the Fair Trade Labeling Organizations International (FLO-International) and adapted by FTM. These include:
    • direct trade
    • fair price
    • long-term commitment
    • access to credit
    • democratic management
    • public information
    • environmental sustainability
    • community development
