Trade In Conformity With A Fair-Trade Agreement

In 2004, the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) introduced a new fair trade organization identification brand (unlike FLO International and Fairtrade) in 2004 to complement the Fair Trade product certification system and, most importantly, to allow artisanal manufacturers to sell their products outside of international operations. The FTO[78] label allows consumers to recognize registered fair trade organizations around the world and tries to ensure the implementation of standards for working conditions, wages, child labour and the environment. The FTO label provides fair trade organizations (including craftsmen`s manufacturers) with defined standards to inform consumers, trading partners, governments and donors of the applicable trade standard. In 2014, the Mark Fair Trade Programme was launched to create new opportunities, first for cocoa, sugar and cotton producers. [79] It has the same round logo next to the word FAIRTRADE in black and under the title of the program in turquoise.

These labelling practices weigh on producers in the global South with certification, which promotes inequality between the world North and the world`s South. The certification process is excessively cumbersome and expensive. Northern consumers are able to make a simple choice without these expenses and expenses. [68] There is widespread confusion because Fairtrade International`s standard fair trade industry standards (The Fairtrade Labelling Organization) use the word “producer” in many different ways, often in the same specification document. It sometimes refers to farmers, sometimes to the primary cooperatives to which they belong, to secondary cooperatives to which primary cooperatives belong, or to tertiary cooperatives to which secondary cooperatives may belong,[69] but “the producer [also] refers to any unit certified according to the standard international standard generic international trade standard for small producing organizations, the general fair trade standard for women and men, or the general standard of contractation. [70] The word is used in all these meanings in key documents. [71] [72] [73] [74] [75] [75] [76] In practice, when price and credit are discussed, the execution organization means that “for small producer organizations, payment must be made directly to the certified small producer organization.” [77] and “In the case of a small producer organization [z.B for coffee], fair minimum prices are set at the producer organization level, not at the level of each producer (members of the organization),” which means that the “producer” has halfway the marketing chain between the farmer and the consumer. [77] The “producer” part of the standards relating to cultivation, the environment, pesticides and child labour is the farmer.

The concept of fair trade also influences the industry. Feminist columnists in several publications have written articles to a pornographic industry with mutual consent and without using the working conditions of actors and actresses. [140] [141] There are also academic discourses on these facets. [142] [143] If you think your company has encountered a trade barrier in the EU market, you can contact us: India, Pakistan and West Africa are the main exporters of fair trade cotton, although many countries grow fair trade cotton. [123] [124] Textiles and clothing are exported from Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. [87] Alternative trade organizations are often, but not,
