Fair Trade Movement

Definition

Economics

  • A system overseen by several international NGOs, in which products of developing countries are purchased at a fair price from individual producers and sold with a fair trade label to consumers in developed countries. These intermediaries also seek to promote other objectives, including environmental sustainability and capacity building, while keeping prices to consumers low by bypassing more conventional intermediaries.
