Fairtrade Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) is a dynamic and enterprising development organisation with a vision in which all farmers and workers have reliable and sustainable incomes so they have the freedom to decide their own futures. We are best known as the independent, not-for-profit body behind the Fairtrade Mark, the most trusted ethical label in the world.
Fairtrade ANZ is governed by a Board of Directors and is a member of Fairtrade International, a global network that has worked for over thirty years at putting producers first. Social justice and respect for the dignity of every person are at the core of Fairtrade's approach. That starts with paying fair prices and pushing for decent livelihoods for all farmers and workers and then working to ensure that supply chains are sustainable and transparent.
The global Fairtrade network includes farmer and worker cooperatives in Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America/Caribbean. They are co-owners of the global system, the system that supports companies to act faster, farmers and workers to benefit more, and consumers to connect directly to producers.
Fairtrade ANZ has, in 2021, embarked an ambitious new five-year strategy to empower consumers and businesses to choose fair.
