What does Fairtrade Australia and New Zealand do?
Fairtrade Australia & New Zealand is part of a global network of organisations that works directly with producer groups, businesses and communities.
Fairtrade changes the way trade works through better prices, decent working conditions and a fairer deal for farmers and workers in developing countries. This enables producers to have more control over their lives and decide how to invest in their future.
Producers are 50 percent owners of the system and have a strong voice at every level of Fairtrade, from how they invest in and run their local organisations, to having an equal say in Fairtrade’s global decision-making.
The Fairtrade Mark, which is displayed on products, shows that the Fairtrade ingredients in the product meet internationally agreed Fairtrade social, economic and environmental standards. Products carrying the Fairtrade Mark are independently certified and audited to ensure compliance across global supply chains. By choosing Fairtrade, people can create change through their everyday actions.
Fairtrade Australia and New Zealand is one of our key sponsors and we are delighted to have Molly Harriss Olson
on our panel on Friday 27th April to explain their role and answer your questions.
