All products bearing the Fairtrade logo have been sourced from producers in developing countries.
Fair Trade is a sustainability-inspired market movement aimed at improving the financial health and profitability of small producers and farm owners, most of who are based in developing nations, and whose products are bought and sold on a relatively volatile global market.
It is a tool for development, to ensure that disadvantaged workers and farmers get a better deal, and a fair price, for their produce. Here at Denby Dale Coffee, we stock a large range of Fairtrade hot drinks, including coffee beans, teas, filter coffee and hot chocolates that meet the highest ethical standards and look out for the grower as much as the consumer.
To be awarded with the Fair Trade certification, there is a requires that the farmer demonstrates its own practices are within a set of ethical standards that include, among other things: acceptable working conditions, the absence of child labour, and ecologically responsible farming methods.
The Fair Trade Foundation is the independent non-profit organisation that licenses use of the FAIR TRADE Mark on products in the UK in accordance with internationally agreed FairTtrade standards.
