Fairtrade America is the US arm of the global Fairtrade umbrella organization, Fairtrade International (FLO). Fairtrade America licenses the FAIRTRADE Mark, the world’s most recognized ethical label found on over 27,000 products in 120 countries. The FAIRTRADE Mark is backed by global standards developed through consultation with producers and their trade partners and audited by a rigorous certification system from farm to shelf. More than 1.2 million farmers and workers around the world participate. Fairtrade farmers and workers are represented at the highest levels of decision-making, including Fairtrade International’s Board of Directors, General Assembly, and Standards Committee.
