Do all products have minimum prices?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.  It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like  Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Principles of the Fairtrade MEL programme

Fairtrade has a committed programme of Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) that supports internal learning and improvement and helps build the evidence base for assessing the difference we make. The key principles guiding our MEL work are:   Evidence: to build a sound body of evidence about the results of Fairtrade’s interventions in bringing change based on our Theory of Change. Global Scope: to put in place a clear framework for monitoring and evaluating Fairtrade’s impact globally and ensure that research from specific regions can contribute to global understanding and vice versa Coordinated Methodology: to ensure that all monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment follows key methodological principles and incorporates select core indicators to ensure consistency and build baseline data to analyse trends Learning: to provide the necessary data and analysis needed to build an evidence-based learning system that guides internal decision-making, strategy and continuous improvement Access: to ensure that all system members (including producer networks, national Fairtrade organizations) can access and analyse key data based on their needs Resource optimisation: to ensure best value of monitoring and evaluation efforts by building on structures and tools that we already have, reducing duplication, maximising the learning value of existing activities such as audit and producer support, and enhancing co-ordination and consistency. Dissemination: to ensure that the results of monitoring and evaluation processes are effectively communicated and disseminated internally and externally in collaboration with other teams and system actors. Accountability:  to support the Fairtrade system in being more accountable to all its members, participating producers and their organizations, campaigners and supporters, businesses and donors. Optimise producer benefit: to be efficient in MEL work so as to reduce the time and burden placed on individual farmers, workers and staff within producer organizations. To ensure that producers have access to their own monitoring data, and to support better data management, analysis, and learning at the level of producer organizations.

Don't donations conflict with the principle of 'trade not aid'?

We believe that global trade should benefit all those involved. But often the farmers and workers who produce our food are not receiving a fair share of the value of their produce, leaving them unable to feed themselves and their families. This is why Fairtrade exists, to support these farmers and workers to receive a fairer price and a fairer wage.  ‘Trade not aid’ is a commonly used phrase that embodies the approach of Fairtrade. Enabling producers to earn more through improved terms of trade allows them to provide for their families and invest in their futures. Investment and innovation in agriculture often leads to development, jobs and higher standards of living. Conventional forms of development aid do not always have the same potential for a longer-lasting improvement in people’s lives and for further benefits. Fundraising and donations do not conflict with this approach, they actually complement it. Donations help us to run projects that bring Fairtrade to more farmers and workers, and deliver projects that enable farmers to tackle some other large threats to their livelihoods such as climate change and devastating crop diseases. Donations are not passed on directly to farmers in the form of cash handouts.  In Latin America there is a fungus that affects coffee bushes that is known locally as la roya. It can prevent the growth of berries or even kill trees. This disease can destroy the coffee farmers’ harvests, wiping out their income. A project part funded by donations to the Fairtrade Foundation provided vital training to farmers in El Salvador on how to deal with la roya. The training taught farmers how to save some trees, diagnose the disease early, and how to help prevent it from spreading. This project has transformed the fortunes of these coffee farmers and is a great example of the difference your donations can make.
