What is behind the "Fair for Life" seal?
The "Fair for Life" seal certifies products from fair trade, environmentally friendly production and social responsibility. The programme has extended the definition of traditional fair trade: Fair trade principles can also be applied to regionally produced goods and domestic trade and socially responsible working conditions can be demanded along the entire trade chain. The seal places high demands on trading conditions and transparency of value creation.
The Fair for Life programme was developed by the Swiss Organic Foundation in cooperation with the Institute for Market Ecology (IMO) as an alternative fair trade certification programme to provide all producers and all products with the possibility of fair trade certification.
The aim of the Fair for Life programme is to improve the lives and living conditions of disadvantaged producers and workers on all continents, in all cultures and areas of production.
