Our values

Our values make us a great place to work.

Fairtrade’s vision is for a world where all producers can enjoy secure and sustainable livelihoods, fulfil their potential and decide on their future.

We work with farmers and workers so they can improve their living standards, invest in their communities and businesses, and protect our shared environment.

Fairtrade is more than just a different way of doing business. It’s a unique international movement with a bold and breathtaking vision
