Fair and Square: Better market share, more benefits through Fairtrade

3ie Brief No. 13, March 2010

Fairtrade can have positive impacts on producers in developing countries, increasing income and employment opportunities, reducing vulnerability to price fluctuations and giving producers a better access to larger foreign markets and attract higher value.

Whilst farmers’ incomes may have improved, there is still no clarity on whether Fairtrade makes livelihoods sustainable in the longterm.
