What is the difference between Fairtrade Australia and the Fair Trade Association Australia/New Zealand?
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FAIR TRADE AND FAIRTRADE?
The term Fair Trade is used to refer to the Fair Trade movement as a whole and the organizations that abide to the 10 Principles of Fair Trade. This includes both labelled and unlabelled Fair Trade goods and the work of the World Fair Trade Organization.
Fairtrade (one word) is used to describe the certification and labelling system governed by Fairtrade International. The Fairtrade system allows consumers to identify commodity goods (tea, coffee, rice, cotton etc – and sportsballs) - that have met internationally-agreed Standards according to the Fairtrade system.
Fairtrade labelling is one component of the Fair Trade system.
