FAIR TRADE

Fair Trade Federation (FTF) - an association of wholesalers, retailers, and producers committed to providing fair wages and good employment opportunities to economically disadvantaged artisans and farmers worldwide. Actions, campaigns, news, and the useful – unfortunately not updated - 2003 report on Fair trade global trends…all available online.[www.fairtradefederation.com]

International Fair Trade Association (IFAT) - the global network of Fair Trade Organizations web site. The majority of its members are based in the South (Asia, the Middle East, Africa and South America) with the rest coming from North America, the Pacific Rim and Europe. They’re really international. [www.ifat.org] recommended updated

Network of European Worldshops - a European umbrella of national ‘worldshop’ associations (shops that offer fairly traded products and campaign for a fairer world trade system) in 13 different countries. On this nice and coloured website, you’ll find useful information on fair trade campaigns, news, reports and surveys on people attitudes towards fair trade products. Really well done!
