(Fair Trade Federation)
In September 2008, the Fair Trade Federation Board unanimously adopted nine Principles of
Fair Trade. The Principles, as adapted from the standards of the World Fair Trade Organization to focus on businesses operating in North America, provide an overarching framework for members and ways that the Federation seeks to live its values.
Through an extensive process of member and stakeholder engagement, the Federation has worked to define best practices in fair trade. In September of 2009, the Fair Trade Federation Board of Directors officially adopted the Fair Trade Federation Code of Practice. This document describes the ways in which businesses can embody the 9 Principles of Fair Trade in each of their trading relationships.
