For consumers, the new mark is a clear direct link to the international Fairtrade system. Products bearing the mark have met the social, economic, and environmental criteria set by the international Fairtrade system. Purchase of products with the Mark ensures ongoing support for Fairtrade farmers and workers in the field and the development of the internationally-agreed Fairtrade Standards, Minimum Prices and Premiums.
For companies, using the international FAIRTRADE Mark will ensure clear Fairtrade chains of custody from producer to consumer.* Businesses and traders interested in using the international FAIRTRADE Mark should contact Fairtrade Canada at email@example.com. Fairtrade Canada, a member of Fairtrade International, is assisting US companies that would like to be part of the international Fairtrade system.
*FTUSA, the former member of Fairtrade International, left the international Fairtrade system last year. As a result FLO-CERT, the Fairtrade certification body, no longer provides services to FTUSA. For more information on this, please visit the website of Fairtrade International.
