It’s Fairtrade Fortnight! From 24th February to 8th March, people across the world are working to help the Fairtrade Foundation bring attention to their campaign for cocoa farmers to earn a living income for men and women. In the past few years, awareness of social causes has risen drastically, helping to provide equal pay to the people who work to make the products that we use every day.
What the Fairtrade Standards cover:
Price: The Fairtrade Premium and the Fairtrade Minimum Price provide Fairtrade farmers and workers with a safety net that protects them from low prices for their crops.
Premium: Fairtrade farmers and workers choose how they spend the Fairtrade Premium, which they can use to make their farms and communities more robust.
Women’s empowerment: Fairtrade is also supporting more women cocoa farmers to become empowered alongside men. Fairtrade Standards make sure they are represented in decision-making and benefit from Fairtrade.
Environment: Fairtrade supports farmers to protect the environment.
