Sign up is over

Sorry! This year's World Fairtrade Challenge is over! You can still support Fairtrade in many ways and celebrate Fairtrade every day with your purchases.

Thanks to people like you, more hard-working farmers and workers around the world can build better lives and brighter futures.

How? Well, there’s the Fairtrade Minimum Price for many products, which acts as a safety net when market prices drop below sustainable levels. And then there’s the Fairtrade Premium, an extra sum of money paid on top of the selling price that farmers choose how to spend. That could be improving their livelihoods through learning new farming techniques, building schools, investing in better healthcare or protecting the environment.

Our shared goal is a fair deal for all farmers and workers. Although we still have a long way to go, there are plenty of wins to celebrate.
