Fairtrade: New framework 2013 – 2015 "Unlocking the Power of the Many"

Close to one billion people suffer from hunger. Too many of them are small farmers and workers in the Global South, facing challenges such as volatile prices and climate change

As a global grassroots movement and the owner of the most trusted ethical mark, we seek to be at the cutting edge of reforming global trade in favour of justice, unlocking the power of disadvantaged producers and workers.

For the past 25 years, we have taken the vision of the pioneering fair traders to the wider public, directly reaching over 1.2 million smallholders and workers. The model has been shown to work; now we need to take it wider.

For 2013-15, the whole Fairtrade system is uniting behind this common framework. We will focus on building our unique strengths, and delivering in the following four areas:

  • World-class work with smallholders
  • Driving real change for workers
  • Grow the grassroots social movement and the market
  • Strengthen the global Fairtrade system
