WHAT IS FAIR TRADE There are millions of farmers all over the world who work hard to grow things we enjoy eating, drinking and using every day. They need the money they earn from selling these things to our families so that they can be able to look after their own families, but sometimes it is difficult. Fair trade is NOT a charity. Fair trade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers.

Around 70% of this is used to make jewellery, with consumers across the globe spending a whopping $135 billion a year on gold jewellery! For Fair trade gold, miners receive a guaranteed Fair trade Minimum Price and Premium ($2,000/kg) to invest in improving their business or in community projects such as education, clean water and healthcare.
