Fair trade is a trading partnership based on dialogue, transparency, and respect that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers. Fair-trade organizations, backed by consumers, are engaged actively in supporting producers, in awareness raising, and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade. —FINE Fair Trade Network
