Fair Trade

WFTO-Asia is a network of dedicated Fair Trade Organizations that follow the World Fair Trade Organization’s 10 principles of Fair Trade.

“Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers – especially in the South. Fair Trade Organizations, backed by consumers, are engaged actively in supporting producers, awareness raising and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade.” (FINE 2001)
