Fair Trade Federation


Fair Trade Federation

The Fair Trade Federation is an association of Canadian and American fair trade wholesalers, importers and retailers. The organization links its members to fair trade producer groups while acting as a clearinghouse for information on fair trade and providing resources and networking opportunities to its members.

FTF members are committed to the following principles and practices in their trading relationships: fair wages; participatory workplaces; environmental sustainability; financial and technical support; consumer education; respect for cultural identity; and public accountability, as well as to direct and long-term relationships with artisans and producers in developing countries.

All members strive to sell 100% fairly traded products.
