Why Join the World Fair Trade Organisation?

Are workers, farmers or artisans working with you your main priority?

If so, here are five reasons you should join WFTO

01

This is your tribe

we are a democratically-run global community of mission-led enterprises. Everything about WFTO is created by the members, decided by the members.

03

The label is yours

members own the Guaranteed Fair Trade label (no license fee), and (once verified as a mission-led Fair Trade Enterprise) they can use it on all their products.

05

Visibility as a true Fair Trader

buyers and consumers are looking for more Fair Trade brands and products. They search the WFTO website and social media to find them.

02

Credible, clear and affordable

WFTO verification system was built by the Fair Trade movement to be credible, and adopts a common-sense approach. It carefully minimises costs and uses a combination of self-assessment reports,  office reviews and independent audits (4 yearly audits).

04

Grassroots community

members support and trade with each other, speak up collectively on trade justice and Fair Trade, deepen ties at global and regional gatherings and collaborate at trade fairs.
