Fair Trade USA Unveils Redesigned Certification Label
I’m the newly-redesigned Fair Trade Certified label. Check me out with my more modern rounded edges and shades of green. I think my new look will make it even easier for you to spot Fair Trade Certified products in your favorite grocery stores, restaurants and cafes.
Since 2009, sales of products containing Fair Trade Certified ingredients have resulted in more than $3.4 million in premiums to support the development of farming communities around the globe. These products, like ice cream, bottled beverages, snack bars and baked goods, contain a combination of Fair Trade Certified ingredients and ingredients for which Fair Trade standards do not exist (like milk, eggs and flour).
We often get asked where to buy Fair Trade products. Well, you’ll certainly find the most Fair Trade products while shopping at a natural food store like your local coop or Whole Foods Market. They’ll have literally hundreds of Fair Trade products for you to buy.
But what about a more ‘conventional’ supermarket?
