Geographical scope of Fairtrade

The mission of Fairtrade is to promote fairer trading conditions for disadvantaged producers. The geographical scope policy of producer certification determines in which countries producers can be eligible for Fairtrade producer certification.

Income per capita, wealth disparity and other economic and social indicators are taken into account, as well as long-term impact and Fairtrade International’s ability to support producers, to determine which countries can be included in the geographical scope.

The geographical scope is also used to identify Fairtrade pricing regions for the Fairtrade Minimum Price and Premium.
