You can help millions of struggling farmers in the developing world work their way out of poverty by choosing Fairtrade products every time you shop. All you have to do is look for the label.
You can find out more about the label, and how a product gains certification, on the Fairtrade Association Australia and New Zealand website.
The range of Fairtrade products is constantly changing and so it's difficult to list all the providers in New Zealand. However, Oxfam works closely with a number of suppliers that sell a range of Fairtrade products, including:
