BEANTREES & FAIR TRADE

Our support of Fair Trade Certified products provides an additional opportunity for us and our customers to have a meaningful impact on the working and living conditions faced by many who grow, harvest and process coffee throughout the world.






Fair Trade is an economic system that helps family farmers in developing countries gain direct access to international markets, as well as to develop the business capacity necessary to compete in the global marketplace. Fair Trade certification can be applied to many different commodities, not just coffee.

................................................................................... "Fair Trade" does not verify that coffee
is organically grown.

"Fair Trade" does not verify that coffee
is shade-grown.

Fair Trade helps family farmers in developing countries to gain direct access to international markets, as well as to develop the business capacity necessary to compete in the global marketplace.

By learning how to market their own harvests, Fair Trade farmers are able to bootstrap their own businesses and receive a fair price for their products. This leads to higher family living standards, thriving communities and more sustainable farming practices.

Your choice to purchase Fair Trade Certified coffee empowers farming families to take care of themselves - without developing dependency on foreign aid. In the US there is only one third-party certifier (auditor and monitor) of Fair Trade products: Trans Fair USA.



Trans Fair USA is one of nineteen
members of FLO (Fairtrade Labelling
Organizations), and the only third-
party certifier of Fair Trade
products in the United States.

Trans Fair audits transactions between
US companies that offer Fair Trade
Certifiedô products and the international
suppliers from whom they source.
