About Fair Trade

Identifying Fair Trade Products

Fair Trade Certified products receive third party certification from Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International (FLO), which has established standards for labor, contracts and pricing. In the US, it is mostly foods that are certified, including coffee, tea, chocolate, cocoa , spices, honey, sugar, vanilla, molasses, rice and quinoa, olive oil, avocados, bananas and other tropical fruits. There are also certified  flowers and clothing. Products that use certified ingredients also carry a certification label such as some beverages, body lotions and frozen desserts.

While many products such as crafts, jewelry, and clothing are not yet Fair Trade Certified, the Fair Trade Federation (FTF) and the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) establish fair trade criteria that member businesses commit to following. Global Gifts is a member of the Fair Trade Federation and purchases its products from FTF and WFTO members.
