Application Forms

Filling out the application form is the first step of the process. There are several versions of the FTF application depending on where and how you source your products, what products you sell, and your primary sales outlets.

Click on the version that best fits your business model to download the application:

Retailer
Retailer Working Directly With Producers
Wholesaler of Handmade Products
Food & Farm Wholesalers
Cafe

When you have completed the application, send a copy by email to screening@fairtradefederation.org. FTF staff will confirm receipt of your application and supporting materials.

What if I sell products via both wholesale and retail outlets?

Even if your business model includes a mix of wholesale and retail sales, you only need to fill out one application. Choose the application that fits best with your primary form of doing business. If the majority of your sales income comes from wholesale accounts, fill out the Wholesaler form even if you also operate a retail store.

In the case that you have a blended business model, your entire business must meet Fair Trade Federation criteria. We may ask additional questions during the screening process to supplement the application questions.
