The World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) is a global fair trade membership organization. Their goal is to "ensure members follow the 10 Principles of Fair Trade through the Guarantee System, and improve the Fair Trade Standard".
The 10 principles are highlighted below.
One of our favorite aspects of the WFTO is their commitment to supporting small producers. It's at the core of their mission.
"WFTO’s mission is to enable producers to improve their livelihoods and communities through Fair Trade. WFTO will be the global network and advocate for Fair Trade, ensuring producer voices are heard. The interests of producers, especially small farmers and artisans, should be the main focus in all the policies, governance, structures and decision-making within the WFTO.”
