Fair trade is an organized social movement which promotes equitable
standards for international labor, environmentalism, and social policy in
areas related to the production of fair trade goods, which may range
from handcrafts to agricultural commodities. The movement focuses in
particular on exports from developing countries to developed countries..

Fair trade's strategic intent is to deliberately work with marginalized
producers and workers in order to help them move from a position of
vulnerability to security and economic self-sufficiency. It also aims at
empowering them to become stakeholders in their own organizations
and actively play a wider role in the global arena to achieve greater
economic equality.

Some key features of fair trade are:
  • Providing producers with a fair wage
  • Promoting healthy working conditions
  • Providing feedback to producers to help them improve their
    profitability and business practices
  • Maintaining consistent long-term working relationships to give
    producers stable market access
