Standard for Contract Production

This is the standard for small-scale producers who are not yet democratically organized.

As a temporary measure, they can join Fairtrade if they have a partnership with an organization (such as an exporter or NGO) who will assist them to form an independent organization.

The Contract Production Standard currently applies to rice and cotton in India, cotton and dried fruit in Pakistan, and cocoa in Oceania.
