Where we work

Our global system

Fairtrade is a global system that connects farmers and workers from developing countries with consumers and businesses across the world to change trade for the better.


Fairtrade near you

Fairtrade is a global network working to share the benefits of trade more equally – through standards, certification, tailored development programmes, market access, advocacy, and awareness-raising.

Three Fairtrade producer networks co-own the international Fairtrade system, representing more than 1.6 million farmers and workers in Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa and the Middle East, and Asia and the Pacific. These are indicated in green or orange on the map above.

More than 20 organizations promote Fairtrade on a national level, supporting and challenging businesses and governments to increase commitments to fairer trade, as well as connecting farmers and workers with the people who buy their products. These are blue on the map.

Many of the businesses that partner with Fairtrade work globally, so you might find Fairtrade products in other countries not marked here too!

Fairtrade in numbers


There’s happiness in the cooperative! Before [Fairtrade] we didn’t earn enough. Now when I get ill the coop looks after me. Before people came, bought our cocoa and we never saw them again.Issouf Traore, cocoa farmer, ECOOKIM - ECOJAD, Côte d'Ivoire
