Berries – Marjat

Fairtrade Finland has initiated a berry pilot project in collaboration with several companies, representing the entire supply chain of the wild berry industry. The aim of this pilot is to create local certification criteria for wild berries. Find the public consultation document from this page.

The Berry Pilot Project

In March 2024 Fairtrade Finland established the Berry Pilot Project in cooperation with berry companies, producers and retailers. The purpose of the Pilot Project is to create a fair and reasonable certification model within the wild berry industry, ensuring that human rights are taken into account in an ambitious manner. The procedure involves wide consultation with the stakeholders to ensure that the new standard reflect Fairtrade’s strategic objectives, are based on the berry pickers’ and traders’ realities, and meet the consumers’ expectations.
