What is Fairtrade?

Fairtrade is a simple yet incredibly important idea – it’s all about giving the people who produce the things you buy a fair price for their work.

This may seem obvious, but lots of people in poorer countries have to sell their goods at prices so low that they can’t make a decent living.

Often, only a tiny bit of the money you pay for something goes to the person who actually made it! This happens a lot when we import things from poorer countries.
