For millions of farmers around the world, Fair Trade means thriving communities, kids in school, and a healthy environment. By purchasing Fair Trade products, you support the farmers who grow and deliver quality spices, tea, cocoa, vanilla and sugar.
Fair Trade is the internationally-recognized gold standard for social responsibility. TransFair USA's rigorous audit system, which tracks products from farm to finished product, verifies industry compliance with Fair Trade criteria. TransFair allows U.S. companies to display the Fair Trade Certified™ label on products that meet strict Fair Trade standards.
Frontier carries a wide variety of Fair Trade products, including teas, cocoa, vanilla, and herbs and is constantly expanding its line of Fair Trade items -- as when we introduced Fair Trade Certified™ spices to the U.S. market.
We offer a large selection of Fair Trade Certified loose-leaf teas. Every purchase returns a premium directly to the tea workers' communities for projects like hiring school teachers, building maternal health clinics, and bringing electricity to their villages.
In addition to teas and spices, we offer Fair Trade Certified vanilla beans and extracts, sugar and cocoa, as well as Fair Trade Certified™ baking mixes through our Simply Organic brand. Helping support farmers has never tasted so sweet.
There's no better selection of Fair Trade Certified products available. Shop all the Fair Trade products currently available from Frontier.
As we have traveled the world, we've seen firsthand the positive effects of Fair Trade.
Americans live in the wealthiest nation in the world -- and yet many of the foods and products we buy are produced by some of the world's poorest people. To support Fair Trade and make sure that a portion of the money you spend is re-invested in a socially responsible, ethical way, you can:
Buy Fair Trade Certified™: There is no more powerful way to support Fair Trade than with the dollars you spend. When Fair Trade options are available, buy them -- even if the price is a little higher.
Share information: Discuss the issue and what you've learned with friends, family, co-workers and neighbors, and encourage them to support Fair Trade, too.
Join together: There are numerous Fair Trade support organizations in operation across the country. Find one and join...or start one yourself. Encourage local grocers and retail business owners to support this movement by offering Fair Trade products in their stores. Learn more on the TransFair USA web site.
Give Fair Trade gifts: Think of the number of gifts you give each year, for birthdays, weddings and other occasions. Then think about the impact you could have on craftsmen and artisans around the world if the gifts you gave were Fair Trade Certified™. And if the recipient of your gift isn't aware of what Fair Trade means, he or she will receive two gifts -- the one you gave, and the information you share.
