Fair Trade USA
Today, Fair Trade has grown into a leading market-based model of sustainable production, trade and consumption and is approaching an inflection point. In 2016, the sale of Fair Trade Certified™ products in the U.S. reached an estimated $6 billion. More than 1,200 leading brands and retailers sell Fair Trade products. Consumer awareness of our seal rose to 67%. Most important, we have generated cumulative impact of $441 million in additional income for farmers and workers in more than 70 countries. That means that every dollar we’ve spent building the Fair Trade market has generated $4 in impact for the hardworking families whom we serve. This “social return on investment” is truly unprecedented.
