Fairtrade Max Havelaar

Fairtrade Max Havelaar

Fair trade takes a holistic approach, setting requirements not only for sustainable agricultural production but also for democratic organisation and fair trade. In addition to the sales price, producer organisations also receive a fair trade premium for their own projects.

With the internationally standardised Fairtrade logo new products can be more quickly and simply imported into Switzerland and fair trade can continue to grow internationally.
