How we support producers
Fairtrade International and the producer networks offer advice, trainings and financial and other support to help producers meet Fairtrade Standards and maintain their certifications.
Fairtrade is unique in our approach to supporting producer-led change in developing countries. This is because Fairtrade understands that producers are best placed to take into account the specific challenges facing their farms, and decide on the most effective investments for their businesses and communities.
Fairtrade Producer Networks offer direct support to farmers and workers through a network of field staff who are specialists in the Fairtrade Standards, certification processes and requirements. They provide advisory services to farmers and workers, as well as training and information to help them comply with the Fairtrade Standards, strengthen their business capacities, and deepen Fairtrade impact.
Enabling farmers and workers to become better organized is the basis for all producer support services Additional programmes of support in thematic areas, such as climate change, gender and workers’ right enable producers to strengthen their organizations and meet the specific needs of their members. Other programmes help producers to tackle human rights issues in their communities, such as child labour or to improve their financial and HR management. We aim to deepen these programmes further going forward.
