Charter of Fair Trade Principles

In 2009, the Charter of Fair Trade Principles was adopted by the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) and Fairtrade International (FLO). It provides a single international reference point for Fair Trade and gives a concise explanation of Fair Trade principles and the two main routes by which these are implemented. The Charter is also intended to set the foundation for future dialogue and co-operation among Fair Trade Organisations – and between those organisations and other actors – in order that Fair Trade fully develops its potential to secure greater equity in international trade.
