Summary When your farm sells its products as Fairtrade, buyers pay
a Fairtrade Premium on top of the price of the product. This
money goes into a separate bank account and is used to improve workers’ lives. The Fairtrade Premium can be spent on education, health care, career training, or other projects that meet the needs of you and other workers, your families and surrounding communities.
A committee called the joint body decides how this money is
spent. The joint body is made up of worker representatives
with support from management.
