The Fairtrade Foundation is the independent non-profit organisation that licenses use of the FAIRTRADE Mark on products in the UK in accordance with internationally agreed Fairtrade standards. Our four key areas of activity are:

  • Providing an independent certification of the trade chain, licensing use of the FAIRTRADE Mark as a consumer guarantee on products.
  • Facilitating the market to grow demand for Fairtrade and enable producers to sell to traders and retailers.
  • Working with our partners to support producer organisations and their networks.
  • Raising public awareness of the need for Fairtrade and the importance of the FAIRTRADE Mark.

In terms of education, the Fairtrade Foundation runs campaigns for schools, universities and colleges to raise awareness of Fairtrade and its role in helping farmers create a better life.
