Projects
1. PROMOTION OF FAIRTRADE We organise and participate in a variety of campaigns, events and promotional activities to educate consumers about Fairtrade and encourage a demand for Fairtrade labelled products in South Africa. Our objective is to motivate South Africans to create a strong movement in developing a more equal and sustainable Africa. 2. BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT We believe that there is huge potential in creating South-South trade on Fairtrade principles. We work with South African and African traders, manufacturers and retailers to stimulate a local Fairtrade market. By encouraging all-African supply chains, we aim to foster value-adding activities locally, thus keeping the benefits and profits generated by Fairtrade in the continent - ultimately encouraging African development. 3. LICENSING AND MONITORING We license local companies that want to use the FAIRTRADE label on their products and monitor its use to make sure that the integrity of Fairtrade is not compromised.
