“FairTSA is in our opinion a very serious and innovative way to develop the Fair Trade and to communicate about the final achievements. The specificity of the FairTSA label is its proximity to the supply chain, its flexibility, and its reduced management costs. The proximity allows FairTSA to understand what really matters for producers at origin and importers at destination. Thanks to its flexibility FairTSA always find a way to move on and develop fair trade supply chains. Thanks to Its reduced management cost the money goes to the producers and is not lost in administration fees.”

“Being certified according to the FTSA standard enabled us to work together with the farmers on projects spanning a longer period and lasting impact. We very much appreciated the accessibility of the people behind FTSA and their practical approach and solutions.”

“One of the most striking features of FairTSA that we really like is its unwavering commitment to affordability and flexibility in the sense that it enables simultaneous or combined certification for Organic and FairTSA standards to its licensees... The (Community Development Project) initiative goes beyond providing financial support; it actively empowers producers by promoting inclusive decision-making: investing in education, addressing lack of water and power supply, and restorative efforts after disasters and global pandemic. Witnessing the transformative impact of Fair Trade on these communities is truly inspiring. It is fulfilling to see individuals and families flourish and elevate their current conditions. Fair Trade not only fosters economic growth but also nurtures a sense of pride and unity within these communities.”

“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."
