PRESS RELEASE

FRANKFURT, GERMANY - 9 February - New plans are unveiled today by the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) to expand adoption of upcycling and other circular economy production models by Fair Trade Enterprises. The initiative spans fashion, homewares and accessories and will reach over 50 countries. This is the first global initiative of its kind to work across such a breadth of product categories and countries.

 

At its heart, Fair Trade is about people. It shapes trade in order to benefit cocoa and coffee farmers. It transforms business to empower garment workers and artisans.Around the world, it has forged a movement that is about putting producers first. But it turns out that working for people also means working for our planet. When we look across our global community of Fair Trade Enterprises, we see a surge in upcycling waste, organic agriculture, investments in renewable energy and efforts to eliminate water pollution. The heart of Fair Trade is both people and planet. 

Highlights of the summit:

• 300+ Fair Trade leaders and buyers from across the world
• Meet with dozens of importers and retailers (incl. beyond the WFTO community)
• Programme focused on innovation in marketing, design and market access
• Latest market insights and trends
• House of Nations, exhibiting the best of Fair Trade from individual countries
