Fairtrade Finland

The purpose of Fairtrade Finland is to make it easy for consumers to choose ethically and reliably monitored products, and to communicate information about Fairtrade certification. The Fairtrade Finland association also oversees the use of the Fairtrade Certification Mark in Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The association itself is not a trading partner.

Fairtrade Finland strives to grow within Finland the direct benefits of increased Fairtrade channels for developing countries, as the association’s primary function is to support smallholder farmers and the employees of large farms in developing countries.

Fairtrade Finland is part of the international Fairtrade network comprising producer organisations in the south, Fairtrade organisations in the consumer markets, and the umbrella organisation Fairtrade International.
