National Fair Trade Month: What Is Fair Trade Certification?
In honor of National Fair Trade Month, we want to introduce you to various coffee certifications and what these certifications mean to the environment and our sustainability efforts.
You’ve likely heard the term Fair Trade, but do you know exactly what it means and how global its impact is?
Fair Trade Certification was established to protect farmers and workers in developing countries from being unfairly compensated for the goods they produce. These farmers also receive education about free markets to help them establish sustainable businesses which will support and grow their communities. This ensures that these developing communities and countries will contribute to the health of the global economy.
Canteen is proud to support Fair Trade Certification and the farmers it protects. Visit our coffee services page to learn about our other certifications or contact us to learn about the Fair Trade coffees we offer.
