What does fair trade mean?
Fair trade means that products, such as coffee, produced from developed counties and products from underdeveloped countries are sold/traded at fair prices regardless of who made the product. This allows independent workers the ability to compete with larger corporations in a fair manor. When you buy fair trade coffee you are helping independent coffee growers.
