Take action: make the switch to fair trade

You can help millions of struggling farmers in the developing world work their way out of poverty by choosing fairly traded products every time you shop.

Under the Fairtrade system, producers are paid a fair price for their goods and they receive an extra amount, known as the Fairtrade Premium, that can be used to fund community development projects such as schools, water wells and health care clinics.
