Fair Trade farmers trek to Costco and Whole Foods Market to see their products firsthand
Fair Trade USA works with more than 1 million farmers and workers from over 70 countries around the world. These are the people who grow our flowers, pick our coffee, harvest our tea, and plant our bananas, the people who take care of our earth at its most basic level.
We recently had the opportunity to bring some of these farmers to the United States, not only to meet their international buyers and learn more about the Fair Trade industry, but also to visit their prized products on store shelves.
