Recently, we have seen misuse of the term ‘Fair Trade” in current political discourse in North America. The Fair Trade movement, led by our allies in North America, has prepared a joint statement to clarify and set the issue straight about what is true Fair Trade all about. We invite you to read the statement below:
From January 2017, 80% of Páramo production carries the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) First-Buyer Label.
(FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE)
We are happy to announce that for the third time Fair Trade products will be showcased at one of the planet’s biggest trade shows – the Ambiente 2017. Following the success of previous participations, WFTO and its members will display wide ranges of beautiful, high-quality products at Messe Frankfurt, Germany, home of major international trade shows, from 10 to 14 February 2017.
“Fair Trade and solidarity without justice ends up turning into charity.
