Trade as a Force for Positive Change
We value trading relationships that distribute power, risks and rewards equitably. We believe that trade should be a tool to eliminate inequality and create self-determination for all people. We are committed to trade that includes fair compensation, safe and healthy working conditions, direct and long-term relationships, transparent business practices, and workplaces free from discrimination and forced child labor.
Fullest Commitment to Fair and Sustainable Practices
We believe that credibility comes through open and transparent interactions. We believe we have a responsibility to maintain the highest standards and expectations of ourselves and we value organizations that aspire to fully embrace fair trade principles, including the application of economic, social, cultural, and environmentally sustainable practices.
We celebrate the contribution and value of all people in the supply chain and recognize the dignity of each person and organization in our interactions and relationships. We believe that people have a right to participate in the decisions that affect their lives based on open sharing of information.
Solidarity in a Global Community
We believe that communities grounded in trust, moral support, cooperation, and a sense of belonging makes us stronger individually and as a whole. We value the impact that comes from empowering consumers with knowledge and believe that our unified voices convey a powerful message.
