Fairtrade Africa

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

Fairtrade Africa is the independent non-profit umbrella organisation representing all Fairtrade certified producers in Africa.

Fairtrade Africa is a member of Fairtrade International (FLO) which unites three producer networks (Fairtrade Africa; CLAC – Latin America and the Caribbean; and NAP – Asia) and 21 labelling initiatives across Europe, Japan, North America, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand.

Fairtrade Africa is owned by its members, who are African producer organisations certified against international Fairtrade standards producing traditional export commodities such as coffee, cocoa, tea, cotton, cut flowers, bananas, pineapples, mango and non-traditional commodities including shea butter, rooibos tea, vegetables and fresh and dry fruits.

The main task is to represent the interest of Fairtrade certified producers in Africa and to promote their socio-economic development through trade.
