Source Fair Trade Products
Sourcing Fair Trade Products From Our Verified WFTO Members
A Guaranteed WFTO member adheres to the highest ethical and environmental requirements. WFTO members are fully verified as Fair Trade Enterprises. They have been independently audited and proved their Fair Trade practices extend all along their supply chain as well as in their buying and management processes. This ensures that the Fair Trade products sourced are sustainably, ethically and consciously produced in compliance with our 10 Principles of Fair Trade.
Benefits of sourcing from our verified WFTO members
First Buyer Label
The First Buyer Label is used by businesses that buy products from a verified WFTO member and want to re-brand these products without being fully verified under the Guarantee System. Upon a positive assessment by WFTO and payment of the licensing fee*, a First Buyer Label will be issued to be used on end products.
*A licensing fee of 1% of the purchase order amount (with a minimum of €100) is required.
Benefits of the First Buyer Label
- Adds value to your products
- Indicates your support of Fair Trade enterprises and our 10 Fair Trade Principles
- Represents transparency and accountability in the sourcing of products
- Provides visibility to conscientious customers
