The organisation joins a list of national governments, international organisations, and non-governmental organisations, among many others, who are equally committed to workers and social justice.  

Fairtrade has been promoting social justice in global supply chains for nearly 30 years. It works to achieve greater balance among the economic, social, and environmental dimensions of sustainable agriculture, while reducing inequalities and poverty.
