“The purpose of the Fair Trade Sustainability Alliance is to improve farmers’ and workers’ quality of life through the practice of fair trade and sustainable community development.

Fair Trade is a market-based approach to international trade, where ethically-minded buyers invest in social responsibility to empower the people that produce these products."
