Fair Trade Farmworker Awareness
For Farmworker Awareness Week let’s celebrate and honor farmworkers both locally and globally for providing us with quality food, beverages, snacks, and treats. Fair Trade Certified products put farmworker wellbeing first. Our standards require safe working conditions and fundamental rights at work such as equitable wages, access to healthcare, and safety training.
Workers on Fair Trade Certified farms, not only receive Community Development Funds to invest in their areas of biggest need, but also benefit from more than 100 protections and quality of life assurances. They receive regular training around health and safety, quality assurance, and as of late, COVID-19 prevention and relief. By sourcing Fair Trade Certified products, businesses make it easier for people to find and buy products that align with their values
