Monitoring the scope and benefits of Fairtrade – ninth edition – 2017

Published: 16 Aug 2018


This report presents the 2016 monitoring data on Fairtrade certified producer organizations, covering all products and countries, with a special focus on the seven major products that represent a livelihood for more than 90 percent of all Fairtrade farmers and workers. It presents the scope and scale of Fairtrade in 2016, provides analysis of trends and information on activities that directly impact.

As a learning organization, Fairtrade uses this wide range of data as an important indicator of our impact on farmers and their organizations and on workers on certified plantations. Understanding the full picture – the areas of strong performance as well as the challenges still to overcome – allows us to reshape our approach and continually improve. Fairtrade International makes this information public as part of our commitment to transparency, openness and information-sharing with our stakeholders and supporters.
