Fair Trade is an alternative way of doing business — one that builds equitable, long-term partnerships between consumers in North America and producers in developing nations. The program supports disadvantaged farmers and artisans in developing countries all over the world. The income they earn through selling their products allows them to feed, clothe, shelter, educate, and provide health care to their families.
