General fair trade principles

Whilst different fair-trade-type certification bodies offer different standards with differing emphases, they all cover the following principles based on fairness, mutual respect and transparency:

  • Employment is chosen freely
  • Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are respected
  • Working conditions are safe and hygienic
  • Enforced child labour shall not be used (remembering that in India and in Africa farms are family enterprises, and children have their duties in support of their family)
  • Living wages are paid
  • Working hours are not excessive and are reasonable
  • No discrimination is practised;
  • Regular employment is provided
  • No harsh or inhumane treatment is allowed
  • There should be sustainable trading relationships, based on trust, transparency, equity, accountability and continuity. These should be long term, based on mutual advantage, which includes price stability
  • There should be a social and cultural emphasis within and external to the business that benefits the wider community
  • The whole chain of product supply is covered, from farmer to retailer
