About the Fair Trade Association
The Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand (Fair Trade Association) is a member driven not-for-profit organisation. Our members support the global fair trade movement seeking to challenge conventional trade by placing fairness in prices and wages and the capacity to compete, and the alleviation of poverty at the core of international trade practices, both in our region of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, and beyond.
We engage with and support local fair trade network groups and our growing network of Fair Trade Communities: councils, universities, workplaces, faith groups and schools who have made a commitment to fair trade. We also recognise and promote products showing the Fairtrade Mark (managed by Fairtrade Australia & New Zealand), are network members of the World Fair Trade Organisation global founders of the 10 Fair Trade Principles and manage our own endorsement system Fair Traders of Australia (based on WFTO international principles) as a credible fair trade system.
