Farmer cooperatives receive the Fair Trade price directly. This eliminates the producers’ dependence on local middlemen, who often only pay for a fraction of the honey’s real value.
Fair Trade certification delivers honey straight from Mexico and Brazil to sweeten your tea and the lives of small, artisan beekeepers. Many beekeeping families live in developing regions throughout Asia and Latin America and without Fair Trade are dependent on middlemen to purchase their honey, often at a fraction of its worth. Fair Trade guarantees producers a set minimum price for their honey and links cooperatives directly to the U.S. market to pave the way for long-term sustainability.
