What Is Fair Trade Coffee and Why Should You Drink It?
In addition to its great, tropical coconut taste, one of the things that may appeal to many coffee drinkers is that Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Island Coconut coffee is certified made under fair trade practices. What does this mean for you as a coffee drinker?
Fair trade certification is a product certification that indicates a product is developed and sold under fair trading practices. The fair trade certification is typically granted by one of four international fair trade networks (the Fairtrade Labeling Organization International, the World Fair Trade Organization, the Network of European World Shops, or the European Fair Trade Organization).
Most certified fair trade products feature the FLO International’s “International Fair Trade certification” mark. Products reviewed for fair trade certification are not limited to coffee, either – cotton, fruit juices, tea, vegetables, and cane sugar are some of the other products that can be certified fair trade.
So what exactly does fair trade certification mean? It means the coffee is produced and distributed according to established fair trade standards. For importers, that means promising to pay a minimum fair price to the exporting organization. For exporters, it means working with approved fair trade farming cooperatives, where any surplus on costs of fair trade membership goes to social projects organized by the exporting cooperative.
