Monitoring the scope and benefits of Fairtrade – seventh edition – 2015

Published: 9 Jun 2016


This report gives the results of the 2014 monitoring data collection from Fairtrade certified producer organizations. It presents the scope and scale of Fairtrade in 2014, and gives data on key Fairtrade performance indicators – from a producer perspective. The report also captures the results of more detailed research about the impacts of Fairtrade.

The information generated through our monitoring and evaluation processes is used to inform and guide the Fairtrade system. It gives us an important indication of how we are performing in relation to our ambitions to unlock the power of Fairtrade, and to drive impact with farmers and their organizations and with workers on certified plantations. This shows us where we are performing well, and where we have challenges to overcome. Fairtrade is a constant work in progress: understanding the challenges allows us to reshape our approach and activities to address them.
