Fairtrade and why it matters! 🍃❤️
We had an amazing conversation with Helen Reimer, Director of Business Development at Fairtrade Canada.
Fairtrade is changing the world by driving for better prices, decent working conditions, environmental protection, and a fairer deal for farmers and workers. They offer training and support, through programs like their Women's School of Leadership or the Climate Academy.
Here are some impressive numbers that give a great overview of Fairtrade:
🍃 30 years in action
🍃 Over 2,500 licensees offering more than 37,000 products with a FAIRTRADE Mark worldwide
🍃 Over 1.9 million farmers and workers across 70 countries are involved in Fairtrade
🍃 Fairtrade encompasses 1,930 producer organizations
2,200 Fair Trade Towns in 30 countries, countless schools, universities and faith groups
3 regional producer networks
Over 25 national Fairtrade organizations and marketing organizations
🍃 In cocoa beans, there are over 394 producer organizations and more than 440,000+ farmers are involved in the production of Fairtrade cocoa.
We are so proud of having a 100% Single Origin and Bean-to-Bar Fairtrade process. We want to help change the world with our company and working with Fairtrade is a big part of that! ❤️
