FLO International - International FAIRTRADE Certification Mark

International FAIRTRADE Certification Mark

The FAIRTRADE Mark is an international independent consumer Mark which appears on products as a guarantee that producers and traders have met Fairtrade Standards. The FAIRTRADE Mark is owned and protected by FLO, on behalf of its 25 member and associate member labelling initiatives and producer networks.

For a product to carry the FAIRTRADE Mark, it must come from FLO-CERT inspected and certified producer organizations. The crops must be grown and harvested in accordance with the International Fairtrade Standards set by Fairtrade International. The supply chain is also monitored by FLO-CERT to ensure the integrity of labelled products. Only authorized licensees can use the FAIRTRADE Mark on their products.

The FAIRTRADE Mark shows a cheering person - representing both the producers celebrating a fair deal through Fairtrade, and the consumers who know they are making a positive difference through the purchase of Fairtrade products.
