    The Fairtrade Foundation is a certification body which awards an independent consumer label – the FAIRTRADE Mark – to products which meet international standards. The FAIRTRADE Mark appears on products as a guarantee that disadvantaged producers are getting a better deal. There are now over 4,500 products carrying the FAIRTRADE Mark in the retail and catering markets. Fairtrade makes a difference to over 1.5 million farmers, workers and their families.
