Make your business more sustainable through Fairtrade
Sustainable consumption and sustainable business practices have become the expectation, rather than the exception.
Whether your business is completely new to Fairtrade or it is already selling Fairtrade products, this section will provide you with the information and resources you need.
Your next step:
1. Make sure your product is under our scope
Our Standards cover a wide range of products, from cocoa and coffee to honey and spices... even footballs. Only products for which a Fairtrade Standard exists can be certified and licensed to use the FAIRTRADE Mark.
Are you a producer, manufacturer or trader of unfinished products, such as coffee beans or bulk tea? If so, you must get certified. Fairtrade requires that every operator (up to the final product) must be certified against the Fairtrade Standards, in order to assure that the product are produced and traded under fair conditions.
3. Become a licensee and start using the FAIRTRADE mark
- For brands selling finished products to consumers or retailers: If you want to use the FAIRTRADE Mark on the package of your finished product(s), you must complete a licensing contract. When the FAIRTRADE Mark appears on your product(s), consumers trust that your ingredients have been sourced according to Fairtrade Standards.
- For traders selling products in bulk to other businesses: If you trade Fairtrade-certified goods in bulk, you can use the Mark on wholesale packaging with prior written approval from Fairtrade International.
