Fairtrade means exactly what it says: fair trade. Introduced in the 1960s, Fairtrade certification represents an initiative that unites social responsibility, sustainability and competitiveness for small- and medium-sized producers. Fairtrade Labelling Organisations (FLO) is a non-profit commercial society that is based on social responsibility and which aims to ensure equity in international trade.
Fairtrade is a social movement, the stated aim of which is to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions and to promote sustainable agriculture. It is based on three basic beliefs: first, the producers have the power to express unity with consumers. Second, current global trading practices promote the unequal distribution of wealth between nations. Finally, buying products at a fair price from producers in developing countries is a more efficient way to promote sustainable growth than traditional aid.
Certification operates as a chain in which everyone is certified, including the producer and industry, in such a way as to ensure the entire production chain follows the fair trade rules.
The organic production method combines the best environmental practices that contribute to increasing biodiversity and the preservation of natural resources. It is a method of production that uses natural substances and processes to contribute to the production of goods that are environmentally friendly.
Respect for nature’s systems and cycles is a major concern for organic farmers:
ensuring the health of the soil, water, fauna and flora; contributing to a high level of biodiversity; and the responsible use of energy and natural resources (water, soil, organic matter and air are crucial). The use of any type of chemical substance is not permitted.
