Fair trade 公平交易基金会
The Fairtrade Foundation is the independent non-profit organisation that licenses
use of the FAIRTRADE Mark on products in the UK in accordance with internationally
agreed Fairtrade standards. The Foundation was established in 1992 by CAFOD,
Oxfam, Traidcraft and the World
Development Movement, later joined by the National
Federation of Women’s Institutes. Member organisations now also include
Banana Link, Methodist
Relief and Development Fund, Nicaragua
Solidarity Campaign, People &
Planet, SCIAF, Shared
Interest Foundation, Soroptimist
International , Tearfund and the
United Reformed Church.
The Foundation is the UK member of Fairtrade Labelling Organisations International (FLO), which unites 21 labelling initiatives across Europe, Japan, North America, Mexico and Australia/New Zealand as well as networks of producer organisations from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Fairtrade Foundation is a registered charity (no. 1043886). It is also a company limited by guarantee, registered in England and Wales (no. 2733136).
Fairtrade standards are not simply a set of minimum standards for socially responsible production and trade. The Fairtrade standards go further in seeking to support the development of disadvantaged and marginalized small-scale farmers and plantation workers. Fairtrade standards relate to three areas of sustainable development: social development, economic development and environmental development.
In summary the key objectives of the standards are to:
ensure a guaranteed Fairtrade minimum price which is agreed with producers;
provide an additional Fairtrade premium which can be invested in projects that enhance social, economic and environmental development;
enable pre-financing for producers who require it;
emphasize the idea of partnership between trade partners;
facilitate mutually beneficial long-term trading relationships;
set clear minimum and progressive criteria to ensure that the conditions for the production and trade of a product are socially and economically fair and environmentally responsible.
关于这个组织的网站内容比较多，看得出认可度比较高，且在它自己的网站上，它说“70%的英国人知晓Fairtrade这个商标”（70% of the UK population recognise the FAIRTRADE Mark）。
