About the Fair Trade Association
The Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand (Fair Trade Association) is a member driven not-for-profit organisation. Our members and supporters are part of the global fair trade movement seeking to challenge conventional trade by placing fairness in prices and wages and the capacity to compete, and the alleviation of poverty at the core of international trade practices, both in our region of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, and beyond.
We engage with and support local fair trade network groups and our growing network of Fair Trade Communities: councils, universities, workplaces, faith groups and schools who have made a commitment to fair trade. We recognise and promote the Fairtrade Mark (managed by Fair Trade Australia & New Zealand), the World Fair Trade Organisation, and our own system Fair Traders of Australia as credible fair trade systems, which meet international fair trade standards.
