Fairtrade is a trading agreement which guarantees a minimum price to farmers that reflects their production costs.

Producers also receive a Fairtrade Premium, for them to invest in community development.

The Fairtrade certification process encourages producer organisations:

- to continuously improve working conditions

- to continuously improve product quality

- to increase the environmental stability of their activities

- to invest in the development of their organisations

- to invest in the welfare of their workers.
