As many of you may know, Fair Trade USA, a third party certifier of fair trade products, has recently released revised standards for public comment. These standards will be used to certify farms and businesses in the Global South as well as the United States, Canada, and other countries in the Global North starting in 2017. The DFTA has convened a committee of members to work on a public comment for these revised standards.
Our members are currently reviewing the standards and will meet by phone on August 11th for a discussion. Interested in helping to shape our public comment? Email
today to get started!
