What does the Fairtrade seal on food mean?
The Fairtrade seal is probably the best-known certification for goods that originate from fair trade and that have been produced in compliance with certain social, ecological and economic criteria.
The seal enables small farmers' cooperatives to achieve stable prices and long-term trading partnerships. Both farmers and employees on plantations receive an additional Fairtrade premium for community projects. The standards also contain criteria on democratic organisational structures, environmental protection and safe working conditions. The controls are carried out by the certification company FLOCERT.
